Wounded Winners

I've seen plenty of well-written, heart-breaking stories about the nearly 400 American men and women who have lost limbs during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. But Brady Dennis of the St. Petersburg Times found a fresh, invigorating angle on this topic for Sunday's paper. In "Sports Therapy," he shows how many of these amputees are turning to their love of athletics to regain their sense of confidence and hope. Dennis mixes national data and interviews with a description of a group of veterans with missing limbs who are riding their bikes from Miami to Key West to raise public support for wounded troops.
