Meet an anonymous Vet in the Fight
In October 2014, Special Operations Speaks held a rally at the WW II monument in DC to reopen the veterans’ memorials that were closed by Obama. More than 10,000 supporters showed up for the event, including Ted Cruz, Steve Scalise, Sarah Palin and a score of other prominent individuals. The group removed the barriers (called “Barry-cades”) and placed them in front of the White House.
This image portrays one of the thousands of supporters that day. Still being treated at the time at Walter Reed, this young Army staff sergeant—and wounded warrior— is hauling one of the barriers to the White House. This young hero exemplifies the Vet in the Fight© spirit.
