Wounded Warriors: They Take a Licking and Keep on Ticking!
Yesterday, I had the honor of working out with Eric Zastoupil and the rest of the Team Red, White, and Blue –West Point chapter to include the Dean, Brigadier General Timothy Trainor.
Eric is a Wounded Warrior, currently stationed at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. He was wounded in Afghanistan and is a below-the-knee amputee.
However, his injury did not slow him down during the workout, which consisted of a team tire flips, burpees, and other exercises. Eric is the epitome of resiliency in action and is a great example for other Wounded Warriors and Veterans to emulate.
Seeing him in action made me think of the Timex watch slogan “Takes a licking and keeps on ticking” (See video below).
Way to EAGLE UP Eric. It’s Our Turn!
