July 14, 2015Jul 14, 2015

Retired Army Sergeant 1st Class, Brian Keaton, served the United States for twenty years.  He is married and has 5 children.  While serving in Iraq, he was wounded by a bomb explosion and suffered brain trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

Brian spent three and a half years in recovery at Walter Reed Medical Center.  Brian also has a big love for baseball.  The Washington Nationals brought Brian out to the ballpark and honored him by having him throw out the 1st pitch.

Brian threw out the first pitch, but not in the way you might expect…
