Nelson M. proudly served in the U.S. Navy for over 20 years. Traveling around the world during his time in the Navy, Nelson suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to the cumulative effect of explosive blasts onboard the ship. Nelson is now confined to a wheelchair, and is living with his wife and caregiver in Florida. Nelson has suffered continually from medical problems caused by the TBI, including depression and dementia. Although living just one block from the beach, Nelson had no way to get there, due to the limitations of his conventional wheelchair. SALUTE, INC. got involved, and purchased a floating beach wheelchair with special water wheels, which allowed him to get on the beach and enter the waves with the help of his caregiver. Nelson is now going to the beach whenever possible and enjoying the water for the first time in years.
