Gunnery Sgt. Lino has served four tours of duty in Iraq and has been wounded twice. Even with his disability, he continues to serve on active duty in the United States Marines.
During the luncheon, Lino will share his story and a speech about treating others who have disabilities with respect, overcoming challenges, and the importance of employment.
