The purpose of this section is to offer inspiration to disabled veterans, regardless of their disabilities, through stories of warriors who have overcome similar challenges. All the warriors listed here have inspiring stories and have made miraculous transformations. The one thread that runs through them all ---they refused to quit. Somehow they found the strength to overcome a litany of physical, mental and spiritual challenges to achieve extraordinary goals and astonishing feats. All are wounded messengers whether they believe they are or not. For every motivated survivor there are so many more who are struggling today. Our hope is to show other injured warriors that they too can triumph over adversity.
