Injured Vet Raises Money
In 2001 Mahopac resident Jon Schneider went directly from classes at the police academy to Ground Zero. In 2003, he went from a training exercise at a secure American base in Nasiriyah, to paralyzed in a hospital bed in Germany. This weekend he will leave Putnam County and hike through the Grand Canyon to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
