Michael Bell Hero

In 2007, while stationed with the U.S. Coast Guard in Detroit, Electrician’s Third Mate Michael Bell suffered a massive stroke, rendering the entire right side of his body paralyzed. He spent the next 18 months rehabilitating, re­learning how to walk, talk, eat, and do many other routine activities. The support from doctors, therapists, and other injured veterans encouraged him to go back to school for a Masters Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and dedicate his civilian profession to helping others.
