Combat-wounded vets hit the ice

This week we highlight a program run by the Adaptive Sports Foundation that gives combat wounded-veterans the chance to participate in events you usually could only watch on TV. 

We followed along with Tupper Lake's Bergan Flannigan as she tried out skeleton, a sport not for the feint of heart.  She lost her right leg to a roadside bomb in Afghanistan five years ago but proves she hasn't lost her courage.
