My name is Satya and I love to run! I'm running my first full marathon this November at the New York City Marathon and will dedicate my run to the 'Hope for the Warriors' charity. As a former Army soldier and Iraq War combat veteran (now Coast Guard helicopter flight mechanic), I have personally witnessed what our military personnel endure in a combat zone. Many of them return home with physical and mental injuries (including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I'm raising awareness and collecting donations in their honor.
