    Salute to troops

    Salute to Retired Capt Tony Simone

    Critically wounded in Afghanistan in 2010, Tony's recovery is remarkable and a miracle. Beating the odds to survive through prayer, strength, and courage, Tony has inspired and touched the lives of many people. He continues to fight daily with determination to live and have purpose for his family. I am very proud of my son, a True American Hero and the entire USAF Rescue Community who sacrifice "These Things They Do So That Others May Live."
