Army veteran Ramon Guitard, 31, was injured by a roadside bomb while on tour in Iraq ten years ago. Guitard eventually lost both legs but that hasn't prevented him from exuding a positive attitude about life. "I'm strong for a purpose," he said. "I've been a survivor from the day I was born." Guitard comes from a single parent home and said he was abandoned as a baby prior to being adopted.
