DECATUR, Ala. (AP) — Fred Bentford is celebrating a resolution of a lifetime.
For Tom Bender, fighting for his fellow veterans means more than showing up once a year in Washington for an awe-inspiring motorcycle rally.
"I think a lot of people will eat healthy and then have one bad meal or miss a week of working out and say, 'Oh, I've messed up my whole diet,' " Bender said. "The reality is they're just one meal or one workout away from getting back on track. That's what I saw with him — persistence."
Tom Bender, owner of Bender's gym, said it was inspiring to watch the evolution of Bentford's progress.
