Shannon is joined by Marine veteran Paul McQuigg and his son, Sebastian McQuigg for a conversation about the importance of never giving up in the face of adversity.

In 2006, Paul was critically wounded by a bomb blast that left him with intense injuries in his jaw and tongue. With help from Semper Fi & America’s Fund, Paul received medical and financial support that allowed him to heal and raise his son. As a football player at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Sebastian discusses how his father’s perseverance inspires him as he plays on the field. Later, Paul discusses how he sought positivity throughout his recovery, and how he hopes to encourage others in similar situations.
