Stars and Stripes reports that “former Marine Rob Jones qualifies as a minor celebrity, the kind who gets recognized from time to time.”

“He’s a war hero, a bronze medal-winning Paralympic rower and one of the stars of the documentary ‘Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor’ alongside stars like Zach Galifianakis and Bob Saget.”

“But to Stephen Miller, Jones will always be the older brother who held him down and tickled him until he couldn’t breathe.”

“Jones — who lost both legs to a Taliban IED — has set out on his latest challenge, bicycling across America to raise $1 million for veterans’ charities.”
