More Injured Veterans Seek Rehabilitation Through Sports, Compete in London Paralympics

Published: August 27, 2012

The international multi-sport competition for athletes with disabilities hits London on August 29.

On a September day in Afghanistan last year, Lt. Brad Snyder was running to help a group of fellow servicemen who had been struck by an improvised explosive device.

As he ran, a second IED buried in the dirt exploded — and Snyder ended up losing the sight in both of his eyes.

Exactly a year later, on Sept. 7, Snyder will compete for a gold medal in the London Paralympic Games, an international celebration of athleticism for people with physical disabilities.
