I have an officer who is very badly injured fighting with the main bad guy and ends up with a limp and needing a walking stick. When she was injured, she was about to be promoted to a rank where, at least under normal circumstances, she wouldn't be sent out in the field. She very much wants to remain in the military. The powers that be mostly want her to remain in the military. Would it be possible for her to stay?
Setting is a made-up country, so theoretically I can do anything I want, but I'd feel better if there were a (modernish) precedent.
