“My story is one of hundreds of thousands of stories that have happened of people having to deal with broken wheelchairs, or being dropped, or having to transfer themselves down the aisle,” Shaun Castle told ABC News.

In 2014, Castle joined the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), a congressionally-chartered veterans service organization, and has since risen to the role of deputy executive director where he has dedicated his life to supporting those with disabilities - regardless of whether they're veterans.
