May 30, 2016: MetroFocus Memorial Day Special – A Celebration of America’s Bravest

May 31, 2016 at 10:41 am

For Memorial Day, in honor of the men and women who gave their lives serving our country in the armed forces, we follow Toba Potosky, president of the Cadman Park Conservancy, on his mission to re-open and restore the Brooklyn World War II memorial erected by New York City Parks Commissioner Robert Moses in 1951. And, on his third and voluntary deployment to Afghanistan, Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills suffered an unimaginable loss: all four of his limbs. He discusses his new book, Tough as They Come, how he continues to overcome life’s challenges and physical barriers, and why he became an advocate for veterans and amputees.
