The Post’s Susan Svrluga has the gritty, remarkable story of Jones, who has rehabilitated furiously at Walter Reed Army Hospital and is already shooting for a spot on the U.S. national rowing team. In addition, the documentary by Kander, titled “Survive. Recover. Live. The Rob Jones Story,” is raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project, which assists wounded troops.

The rest of Rob Jones’s story is here.

Tom Jackman is a native of Northern Virginia and has been covering the region for The Post since 1998.
