Penectomy Due To War Injury

I am not sure if it technically qualifies me as an amputee but  I believe it may. I lost most of my penis in Vietnam many years ago from shrapnel exploding from a land mine. Another squad member stepped on the mine but some caught me in the groin. My testicles were saved but I lost most of my penis. I have the lenght from the tip of my stump to my prostate. I still feel sex as I can get an erection, about 1" exposed. It has been a life changing injury for me emotionally and physically.
