Beck recently interviewed USMC Keith Zeier, who has had a remarkable recovery and is promoting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. From the FirstGiving.com website:
My name is Keith Zeier and I am a Reconnaissance Marine who served with both the 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion and the Marine Special Operations Battalion. On July 17th, 2006 I was involved in an IED explosion that left my left leg with both permanent muscle and nerve damage along with a severe head injury. This incident, unfortunately, ended my career in the Marine Corps but it has certainly not stripped me of the determination, perseverance, and mental toughness that I've gained while serving as an operator in this small community.
Accordingly, I have decided to run a 100 mile ultramarathon from Key Largo to Key West, Florida in honor of the fallen Recon Marines and Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman who have died in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am running this race to raise money for the families of the fallen and wounded warriors of the Special Operations community. Every cent of the money raised from this event will go to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. These operators have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our own civil liberties and we should never forget this.
