Honoring LCpl Michael Martinez & Sgt Andrew Peden. On March 11, 2010 Marine LCpl Michael Martinez was 5 months into his first deployment when he lost both of his legs in an IED blast in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Martinez was returning from a firefight, the 5th man in the foot patrol, when he stepped on an IED resulting in the traumatic amputation of his left leg below the knee and his right leg above the knee. Mike invited fellow Marine Andrew Peden to join us. Peden was also wounded and lost a leg while serving our country. Peden & Martinez are both big Ravens fans who met while recovering in the hospital.
We would like to thank the Baltimore Ravens, Bmore Chix & the Westin Baltimore Washington Airport for helping us make these #WarriorWishes Come true!
