(Cold Spring, KY, Wednesday, November 11, 2020) – Today, the nation pauses to remember Veterans Day and honor the brave service men and women who put everything on the line for our country. For many of our wounded veterans the battle never ends, and in war, there are no unwounded soldiers.
Hear from Army Veteran Centra “Ce-Ce” Mazyck, who was paralyzed from the waist down in a parachuting jump and how she rebuilt her life when a decade-long career in the military came to an abrupt end. Not only did she teach herself to walk, she went on to compete in the Paralympics and went back to college—all as a single mom.
Ce-Ce discusses the resources she found as a disabled veteran, the benefits of active rehabilitation and how DAV (Disabled American Veterans) helped her get the benefits she earned from service.
To learn more about our nation’s history of supporting disabled veterans, viewers can watch a newly released documentary chronicling the evolution of 100 years of veterans’ recovery from war airing on the Military History Channel this week and OnDemand.
