If you’re looking for something uplifting, click over to NBC this evening at 8 p.m. EDT and check out “Prince Harry’s South Pole Heroes,” a documentary that followed last December’s Walking With The Wounded trek to the South Pole.
The dangerous trek featured three teams made up of troops injured in the recent wars. The USO sponsored one of those service members - former Army Sgt. Margaux Mange - who was injured in Iraq in 2006.
“The experience has opened new doors for me,” Mange said earlier this week. “And the USO, from Iraq to the South Pole, has always been there for me and I know they will continue to be there for me in the future. Thank you so much.”
As a prelude to tonight’s event, you can watch Mange tell her story about battling back from injuries in this November 2013 clip:
