J.R. Salzman is a world champion logroller. He set two world records in the boom run. Salzman’s life drastically changed in the wake of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Serving in the military, he would go on to become a wounded warrior and Purple Heart recipient. But would his days as a logrolling champion be behind him? No one, including Salzman himself, predicted what happened next.
