Brandon Mendez Overcoming Obstacles

Lance Cpl. Mendez was injured by a suicide bomber while on check point in Iraq. As a result, he lost his left hand and sustained severe fractures in both feet.

Mendez is also based at the USMC in San Diego. He plans on moving back to Orange County, Calif. to attend college for criminal justice after completing his tour of duty.

"You have to go on with life and bounce back," Mendez said. "I wasn't going to feel sorry for myself or get depressed about my situation. You can give up on things or make the best of what you have. I chose the latter."

Challenged Athletes Foundation Helps Wounded Fulfill Dreams

Since the beginning of the Global War on Terrorism, more than 27,000 U.S. military personnel have been wounded -- many suffering traumatic, permanent injuries. To help these service members get back into sports, CAF provides them with training, the specialized equipment and mentoring they need. The organization often relies on individuals and companies to help with costs associated with helping the wounded warriors fulfill their dreams of competing again. To learn about CAF, visit http://www.challengedathletes.org.
