"I'm coming out to support these guys, but in reality it's given me the biggest boost," said Dietzen, referring to members of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. "It's amazing, if you want your dose of inspiration, you just sit and talk with one of these guys."

"These guys are great, they're inspirational," said Omar Benson Miller, who emphasized that he jumped at the chance to get involved with the organization. "Any time that I feel a little too lazy to do anything, these guys are going to stick heavy in my memory." Omar Benson Miller
