“Hardest part of the injury is not the injury but the morning after when you wake up. What do we do now? But that’s also true for anyone who transitions out. What do we do now? That’s where we can assist," Shaun Castle, Deputy Executive Director, Paralyzed Veterans of America

“Paralyzed Veterans of America is important to me because they give you a sense of life and being, that you actually belong. In the military we are so used to being part of a team. Once you get injured you're on your own. When you get involved with your PVA chapter, you get to swap your war stories, and meet others who are going through similar things to you. You're a part of a team. “- Joshua Maley, US Air Force

We’ve been so lucky to have @rpmotorsports as a supporter of paralyzed veterans. The truck sold for $100,000, all of it benefitting Paralyzed Veterans of America. Congratulations to Rich Fairservis, the winning bidder! Thank you, @pettysgarage @Barrett_Jackson & @MilitaryAutoSrc!
It’s almost time to auction off this awesome truck created by @pettysgarage by @barrett_jackson. Who’s watching it live on Velocity TV?
