"My brother's courage and strength at such a young age has always inspired me, carrying me through many tough times. Peter's story and my combat experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan have fueled a tremendous sense of survivor's responsibility. Peter's Wish is our attempt, as a Board, to earn the life and good fortune that we have been given. We hope to inspire youth to live a fulfilled and meaningful life, give back to their community, and make a positive difference in the lives of others."
