13 Oct Eddie Beesley
Eddie Beesley was not even 20 years old when a landmine explosion in Vietnam claimed the use of both his legs. Since that time, Eddie has become an advocate for other injured soldiers, sharing much of his time and his musical talent with his fellow veterans.
Writing and recording music helped keep Eddie going after his injury, but he felt his reach could be farther, to help even more wounded heroes.
We stepped in and joined forces with The Oak Ridge Boys to help Eddie reach those fellow heroes he previously could not.
Eddie wanted to help other wounded heroes overcome the pain of the past through the power of music. Now he can.
