Annie Colbert"We stand with you."
Those are the powerful words delivered by U.S. veterans to survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings in this new video.
Shoulder 2 Shoulder, a Virginia-based Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, produced the YouTube clip that features veterans from the Wounded Warrior Community. The vets show off all the amazing things they can still do despite their disabilities.
Given the numerous amputees as a result of the bombings, we thought that it would be valuable to provide direct amputee-to-amputee perspective on dealing with initial fears, recovery strategies, and clear visceral proof that amputations do NOT preclude people from leading rich, full, and exciting lives.
