We are speechless. Thank you for covering our story @cnnheroes ・・・
When a #combatveteran returns home, the transition is rarely easy - and it’s different for every #vet. Andy Manzi is a #Marine who served in #Iraq. It took him some time, but eventually, Andy found a way to help himself. Now he’s helping his fellow vets – which is why he’s this week’s CNN Hero. Watch Andy and his fellow vets conquer the waves & learn all about @WarriorSurf & #CNNHeroes at CNNHeroes.com
This is CNN Hero Andy Manzi. He served two tours in #Iraq before being medically retired. After returning home from war, Andy was lost, angry and suffering from a #traumaticbraininjury and #PTSD. But then he discovered the healing power of #surfing. Wanting to give that same healing to other #veterans, he started @WarriorSurf, a nonprofit that provides six-week long surf camps and therapy sessions. Since 2015, the foundation has provided free services to 300 #vets and their families. Meet Sergeant Andy Manzi & learn more at CNNHeroes.com #CNNHeroes
The #WarriorSurf family sends their gratitude to @islasurfschool_charleston for their support and consistency. We couldn't do what we do without the support of our community. Much love 🤘🏽 #folly
