“When I first got injured I didn't want to go anywhere, I didn't want to do anything. Paralyzed Veterans of America got me out of my home. Once sitting at your home for periods of time you get bored staring at walls. You need to get out, see people, see new challenges, and do different things. You become acclimated in situations like the Wheelchair Games where you meet new people and learn new things. To me, the Wheelchair Games is not all about the games, it's about the people that you meet and things you learn from them.” —Robert Satterwhite, US Army
