British Amputee Soldiers on Top Gear

I was watching the season finale of Top Gear tonight (it is Monday after all) when this bit caught my eye.  A group of British Soldiers – all of them amputees wounded in Afghanistan – are training in preparation for one of the worlds most grueling races, the Dakar Rally.  What the rest of the world will not understand is that for wounded Veterans like us challenges like this are actually therapeutic.  Each little battle won is another step toward getting on with our lives as amputees.  Best of luck to my fellow wounded Soldiers overseas.
