Service tribute: My husband, Scott, loves his country. He will tell you, that the reasons he served in the Marine Corps, was to serve his country, and " helping those who can't help themselves." In 1997, he was severely injured during an operation. He was medically discharged. He has had multiple surgeries since then. Things have been difficult for him, but he is resilient. In 2015, he began handcycling. It began to give him the ability to help other disabled veterans. He helps them by helping them with resources that can get into an adaptive sport.
