Afghanistan wounded veteran Tim Poe on America's Got Talent

Update thanks to some readers.

Did Afghanistan Vet Tim Poe "play wounded" on America's Got Talent?

Last night Tim Poe's story made me cry.

He was wounded in Afghanistan and left with traumatic brain injury that causes him to stutter. As I listened to his story, I thought about the great courage he showed knowing that some small minded people would laugh at him. I thought about his attitude and how his smile was so warm no matter what he faced. Then he opened his mouth to sing. I cried harder but this time with joy!
