    FOXBORO - It gives them a chance to do something they thought was no longer a possibility.

    That's the reason several dozen veterans in wheelchairs, and others who have been paralyzed got together Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium to play a little football.

    "It means the world to me," said Brad Carlson, sports director for the New England Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America. "Because of this organization, I've evolved so much."

    These are the true heros of this country. The simple things we take for granted are a major challenge for these soldiers, yet they never let it stand in their way. Unfortunately they are sometimes forgotten about by the very country that they sacrificed so much for. I can never find the words to express my gratitude or sorrow for these men and women, and all they have done. They are a tue inspiration to a soldier like me. THANK YOU
