Bob Meistrell at the JMMF Ocean Therapy with Wounded Warriors

Bob and Patty joined Jim Miller and the other JMMF volunteers yesterday for the JMMF Ocean Therapy with the Wounded Warrior Battalion. The Marines were thrilled to meet the living legend. Bob regaled the group with great stories of inspiration, and of course diving and surfing. By coincidence, the topic for our discussion group--what the Marines affectionately call the Kumbaya sessions--was overcoming injuries and what inspires recovery. Bob's story of breaking his neck and back at the first high school football game, and then recovering for such a long and successful life, was perfectly awesome.
