a women veteran

Meeting someone who has sacrificed so much for their country, yet has worked through it is truly inspiring. Today I met a lady who had been severely injured while deployed yet when she spoke, there was a fire in her eyes and a smile on her face. She spoke passionately about her job and how excited she was to be continuing it. She told us how she hoped to be going to the Paralympics in London 2012 for swimming, in which she has already won a couple of medals at meets. The experience made me very happy and yet reminded me of how much some people sacrifice and go through for our noble country.
