NFL's Shaquem Griffin Bonds With Veterans: 'You've Always Got to Be Thankful for Those Who Fight for You'
Shaquem Griffin spent the day gaming with Israel “DT” Del Toro and Jeremy Daniels as part of USAA's “Salute to Service” initiative.
Seattle Seahawks Linebacker Shaquem Griffin knows what it's like to defy stereotypes.
As the only NFL player with one hand, he regularly confronts ideas about what he can and can't do.
He recently sat down with two wounded veterans who are living with disabilities to talk about overcoming obstacles and play video games together.
USAA connected Griffin with veterans Israel "DT" Del Toro and Jeremy Daniels for a memorable day inside Seattle's Space Needle as part of its "Salute to Service" initiative.
Del Toro is a U.S. Air Force master sergeant who was severely injured while serving in Afghanistan. He lost many of his fingers and suffered severe burns over his body. But Del Toro didn't give up and after recovering, he re-enlisted in the military.
Daniels served in the U.S. Army as a helicopter mechanic and crew member in Kuwait and Iraq. Now battling multiple sclerosis, he is a die-hard Seahawks fan.
Griffin, Del Toro and Daniels spent the day squaring off on the big screen and talking about what it has taken to overcome their own personal challenges, making for a memorable day for the guys and an inspiration for the rest of us.
