On last Friday's WWE Smackdown, the wrestling crew paid tribute to Sgt. Dan Rose, who served 10 years in the U.S. Army Reserves and was paralyzed from the chest down in 2011 by an IED while serving in Afghanistan.

Rose can now walk again thanks to a Ekso Bionics robotic suit donated to him by SoldierSocks, a military charity that started out in 2009 sending tube socks and baby wipes to troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. They've consistently expanded their mission and now provide support to troops after they've come back home.
