During this upcoming Independence Day weekend, it’s only right to salute the men and women who have served in the military for our country. And one Bay Area Iraq War vet injured by an IED is now paying it forward by giving other veterans a chance to succeed.
“This actually still has the natural blood that was from my… you can tell. They didn’t clean it out. There’s still stains in here,” Sgt. Hien Tran told ABC7 News, showing off the helmet that saved his life when he was severely injured in 2008 by an IED blast while serving in Iraq. His captain lost a leg.
