Program Announcement for Wednesday March 2nd, 7pm

| February 7, 2011 5:25 pm

We invite you to a presentation by Liz Jessen, of the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs (VA) DoubleVision Program, a tandem cycling program for vision-impaired veterans.

A very special guest will also be there. Master Sergeant Gil Magallanes served in both the Gulf War and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Gil and his 11-man Green Beret unit were one of the first in Afghanistan after 9/11, as depicted in the book “The Only Thing Worth Dying For.” Everyone in his group sustained injuries and several lost their lives. Gil sustained a massive brain injury leading to vision and hearing loss. Gil’s recovery in itself is inspirational. He has had a second lease on life and has come back from an inability to feed himself to the point where he is racing in triathlon.
