What is the most inspiring part of your job?  The most inspiring part of my job is that we improve the quality of life for injured heroes.  We make a real difference in the lives of our Challengers and our students that will last them a lifetime.  Our Challengers get an improved quality of life and our students solve real problems while gaining empathy for our heroes.  Everyone wins!
