Then Senior Master Sgt. Chad Caden, the chief enlisted manager with the 633rd Civil Engineer Squadron at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, relies on a crutch during his Chief Induction ceremony in Hampton, Va., February 2017, nearly 2 months after receiving an amputation on his right leg due to a bone disease called Osteonecrosis. Osteonecrosis caused Caden’s foot to lose blood flow and resulted in bone decay. This bone disease went undiagnosed for years while Caden experienced debilitating pain that significantly impacted his ability to work. (Courtesy photo)
