Miramar, CA - "Your whole life can change in a moment.
April 11, 2005: a young Marine driving a truck in Iraq hit an improvised explosive device and suffered a severe traumatic brain injury that left him unable to walk, talk or use most of the right side of his body.
Oct. 16, 2010: that same Marine, Angel Gomez, pedaled to the finish line in San Diego with 51 other cyclists after traversing more than 430 miles from Phoenix."
