Jay – Navy SEAL wounded in Iraq

Jay was wounded in Iraq in the fall of 2007. His story made it all over the country, due in part to the orange sign he penned and posted on his hospital doorway (see video below). He has been an inspiration to many others and not only did CNN catch wind of it, but so did the White House… and President Bush invited him into the Oval Office (see photos). Here is the video that aired on CNN (Lou Dobbs, 1/2/2009) and then was picked up and rebroadcast by the local Virginia TV station (which is the version in the video here).
