Wounded Marine's Heartfelt Video Documentary

In July 2006, Keith Zeier a Marine serving with the 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion was injured by an IED explosion that inflicted severe nerve and muscle damage to his left leg and severe head injury.

The injury ended his Marine Corps career and doctors told him that he would have to walk with a cane for the rest of his life.

Through sheer tenacity, determination, and mental toughness, Keith Zeier has rehabilitated himself to the point that he is running the Keys 100-Mile Race, May 16, in honor of fallen and wounded special operations personnel, and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provided Zeier $2,000 so his mother could travel and be bedside during his recovery.

"The constant and severe pain that I suffer in my leg serves now as a reminder of those great men with whom I've served and befriended. Not to mention those who have laid down their life in defense of this country. I am running this race in honor of them and the job that we loved to do. Not a day passes that I do not think of the sacrifices they have made and how it has impacted their families, friends, and loved ones," said Zeier.
