Proud Montana parents Lisa and Tim Corbett tell the story of Jon and Tomy.

Marine Lance Cpl. Thomas "Tomy" Parker, from Ronan, Montana, suffered the loss of both legs and most of his left hand after stepping on an improvised explosive device while serving in Afghanistan.

Jon Tester is a U.S. Senator from Montana who works everyday to provide for Montana's veterans.

During Tomy's rehabilitation the two formed an unbreakable friendship.

Lisa: "Our son, Tomy, was injured by an IED in Afghanistan. Jon Tester reached out, spent time with us."
Tim: "No reporters. Just Jon making sure Tomy had the care he deserved. Throughout Tomy's rehab, Jon kept calling -- motivating him."
Lisa: "We know that's what Montanans do for each other. For Tomy, it's made a difference. Tomy told Jon, the next time he sees him, they're going to go for a walk."
