A salute to our veterans

As we celebrate Veterans DayVeterans Day, let us show our gratitude to the men and women who have bravely and courageously served our country. We will forever be indebted to their service as they protected our liberties and freedoms.

Our military personnel are put in harrowing and perilous situations all around the world. Yet, they continue to serve with honor and valor.

The price of war often results in being physically, mentally or emotionally scarred. Many of our warfighters return home wounded and injured, and organizations like  the Wounded Warrior Project help service members find the resources to adjust to their new normal. The video below shows the reality of war and how a wounded warrior has adapted to his new life.

To the veterans in my family, my co-workers at the Space and Naval Warfare Command (SPAWAR) and all other veterans, I salute you. Thank you for your service to our nation. God Bless America!

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
