Shoulder 2 Shoulder, a Virginia-based Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), has partnered with the Wounded Warrior Community to produce this video message for the surviving victims and families affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.

“Given the numerous amputees as a result of the bombings, we thought that it would be valuable to provide direct amputee-to-amputee perspective on dealing with initial fears, recovery strategies, and clear visceral proof that amputations do NOT preclude people from leading rich, full, and exciting lives,” the group says. “We at Shoulder 2 Shoulder are inspired by the Wounded Warrior Community every day and we sincerely hope that by sharing their experience that the victims of the Boston bombings will be similarly inspired.”
