In 2007, David Kendrick was stationed in Iraq when a sniper shot him in the legs.
After several surgeries, he wondered if he would ever walk again. David was depressed and scared to put weight on his injured limbs. But then David met some physical therapists who told him that his chance of recovery was good and made him believe again.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, David shares his story of recovering from his injuries, and what he is doing today to inspire others.
