While I was at the ski lodge there were dozens of disabled vets getting ready for their day on the slopes, with the adaptive “SOLDIER ON” sports program at Mount Washington (Vancouver Island). When I saw Damien smoothly “walk” in, I just assumed he was one of the instructors. All of a sudden he whips off both legs and starts to change into his ski gear, as he prepared to go outside and snowboard on a regular snowboard! I had to do this interview with him so that other disabled vets could see what potential remains.

My interview with Damien Thomlinson, during his week participating in the Soldier On program:
