U.S. Army Veteran and Paralympic Swimmer

This is a great story about Sergeant Elizabeth Marks, who was injured in the war and became a Paralympic swimmer.  Usually when I see stories about wounded veterans, they’re always about men, and they describe in excruciating detail how they were injured and then all the medical procedures, like their life ended at that moment.  This one focuses on her journey becoming a Paralympic swimmer.

      I’m glad to see one focusing on the hard work of success. So many of the women veteran stories portray them as victims.
