Success Story: Shot by a Sniper in Iraq, A Wounded Warrior Inspires Others

April 7, 2015: In 2007, 20-year-old David was stationed in Iraq when a sniper shot him in the legs.

With two bullet wounds and many eventual surgeries, David wondered if he would ever walk again. He was depressed and pessimistic about his recovery.  And he was scared at the thought of putting weight on his injured limbs. But that’s when David met some physical therapists who told him that his chance of recovery was good and made him believe again.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, David shares his story of recovering physically and mentally from his injuries, and what he is doing today to inspire others through their recovery.
