Disabled veterans pay tribute to the lives lost on 9/11.

A group of disabled veterans paid tribute to the lives lost on 9/11 and in the war on terror by scaling mountains in Yosemite National Park. Amazingly, some of these veterans are amputees, suffer from spine and traumatic brain injury, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder.

Along with the help of a Colorado-based non-profit called Paradox Sports, this group of disabled veterans, led by several guides, split into three groups. The groups scaled El Capitan, Royal Arches, and Ranger Rock. Check out this report uploaded by Victor Vergara.

Cody Elliot, a 24-year old former Marine featured in the video, climbed for friends and soldiers that lost their lives in Afghanistan.

We should all be grateful for the sacrifice that Cody and all the other soldiers have made for us, and I applaud him for being such an outstanding example of pride and determination.
