A Veterans Day Tribute
So I'm a day late, relax. I was clearly just looking for the perfect story to honor the veterans of war and now I've got it: The Amputee World Cup
This year's tournament was held in Argentina, and for the second straight year, Uzbekistan took home the championship. However, it is the English squad which included a number of men who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. After war, bloodshed, and missing limbs, these men are still able and motivated to compete in a sport that they love. It is truly a heroic and touching tale of human sacrifice and the strength of the human heart.
