Running a 26.2-mile, 35th annual Marine Corps Marathon is not out of the ordinary for a former Marine, but in Sgt. Eddie Ryan's case, the circumstances are extraordinary. In 2005 Ryan was wounded while serving in Iraq and is now confined to a wheelchair, the result of a severe head injury that interrupted the normal communication from his brain to muscles in his legs, left arm, and elsewhere.

Sgt. Ryan is a friend ofiend, whose spirit and love for life is an inspiration to all.

Be inspired, send something nice, candy, juice, treats, to our soldiers serving still in Iraq & Afghanistan.

Don't neglect our gals.
