Native Detroiter John W. Quinn was born with cerebral palsy. Yet despite his disabilities Mr. Quinn was determined to make his lifelong dream of joining the military come true. After much hard work and determination, Mr. Quinn now boasts a successful and decorated twenty-year career in the United States Navy.
Written to “give hope to the millions of people struggling with muscular disorders who fight to make it through every day,” this is Quinn’s tale of how he kept his condition a secret and managed to make his vision of becoming a military man a reality.
