Marine veteran Saul Monroy was deployed in Afghanistan when he was severely injured in a truck explosion. His watch was found in the debris, still ticking. After dozens of surgeries and a lengthy recovery, Saul’s leg was amputated. He is now a member of the USA Patriots softball team, which is made up of amputee players, and he keeps moving forward, just like his watch.
