Dancing With Our Heroes: Meet Manny

WTNH– Corporal, U.S. Marine Corps, Ret. Manuel “Manny” Jimenez  talks about his service and performs a dance with Professional Dancer Anastasia “Stasy” Barhatova for Dancing with Our Heroes.

Manny is a Purple Heart Awardee. He lost an arm to an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Afghanistan. His story is compelling and the fact that he is dancing with only one arm is equally compelling. Dancing With Our Heroes will be held on September 13th at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.
