Injured Marine Completes 5k Mile Bike Ride
Twenty-eight year old Marine veteran Rob Jones, a double-amputee, completed a 5,200-mile cross-country bike ride aboard Camp Pendleton today. Jones started his trip in October from Maine, crossing through 18 states, often encountering extreme weather, to raise funds for organizations that provide assistance to injured service members. Jones was injured by an improvised explosive device while deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. He went on to win a Bronze medal in rowing at the Paralympics in London.
