Sept. 21, 2012: Many inspirational athletes competed at the London Paralympics, and one of those was Brad Snyder, who joins today's edition of The Morning Swim Show. Snyder relives the day in September 2011 when a roadside bomb injured and permanently blinded him while serving in the Navy in Afghanistan. He talks about his bomb-defusing training and why he chose that profession. His recovery period involved not only physical therapy, but adjusting to living as a blind person. The upside of the tragedy was an appearance at the Paralympics, which earned him three medals, an opportunity to carry the flag at the closing ceremonies and a meeting with President Obama.
