Texas native Will Hoyum decided to join the Army because he was very interested in being trained in formal combat. Feeling that combat was a great skill to have, Will discovered that he really enjoyed it. After training, he decided to make the military his career. He enlisted in the Army, becoming a sergeant in the 1st Brigade 82nd Airborne Division. During his deployment, Will sustained a spinal cord injury that left him in a wheelchair. Will rose to this new challenge by focusing on his family and adaptive fitness training. Thanks to Help Our Military Heroes and MobilityWorks, this deserving veteran is back on the road with his new BraunAbility Honda Odyssey wheelchair van.

Peter is a New Jersey resident with cerebral palsy. He wrote to Sony complaining about his PlayStation touch-pad interfering with his gaming experience.
