Officer kept 20 Yr. Secret from the Navy

Former Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer, John Quinn kept a secret from his employer the United States Navy for over 20 years. During that time, John even served with the Navy Seals and aboard the USS Iowa as a s a battleship sailor.

In his book, 'Someone Like Me'-My Secret Life with Cerbral Palsy, Jobn writes about how his one small lie and a major acting job, kept his dream of being a sailor in the Navy alive.

John's deception was no small feat when you think of trying to cover up disease with such physically evident symptoms, not to mention the great amount of pain he in daily.

John hopes that his story will inspire others with Cerebral Palsy and give them the hope and proof they may need to see that possibilities do exist for a brighter future than the medical profession has offered so far.
