Determination to Serve

Determination to Serve

The runners at the Angels Race in Lynchburg were cheered on as they reached the finish line. Many of these participants were running to honor their lost loved ones. But one man seemed to stand out from all the rest. Major David Rozelle got even louder cheers as he made his way to the end of the race, running with a prosthetic right leg. But running this triathlon isn’t his biggest accomplishment. In fact, it was his determination to serve our country that helped him make American history.

“As the first amputee to return to active command in Iraq since the Civil War, so a great honor, to the same battlefield, you know. A great honor and went back last month on another mission,” said Major Rozelle.
