Synopsis

Fred Monday, once an all-scholastic football player, had a handicapped little brother who he always felt sorry for, remarking that he would rather be dead than to be like him. Soon, Fred went into the Army and overseas, where an artillery explosion severely left him without a right arm. In the hospital, his kid brother sent him a letter that lifted his spirits, but when people pitied him, he began to understand how his brother Jimmy felt when he had pitied him! Fred meets with the JSA at a soldier’s hospital and asks for their help with some kids in the same situation.

Later back at JSA HQ, Fred Monday is wheeling his brother Jimmy in to see how the members did on their assignments. Jimmy has an idea for the JSA that he’d like to see implemented: a code of conduct for people on how they treat returning handicapped war veterans. In fact, all handicapped people. The JSA quickly draws one up and presents it for their approval.
