Pratt honored Mike Day, a former Navy SEAL who was shot 27 times while serving in Iraq.

Pratt vowed to donate $10,000 to help Day accomplish his goal of completing the Kona Ironman Race. While most people don’t have $10,000 to give a veteran, they can learn about a veteran, tell his story and post it as a tribute, which Pratt encouraged his fans to do.
And then there’s Chris Pratt, donating $10k of his own money to support a veteran’s fundraiser. He’s incredible. https://t.co/Uc0lADz3Ih
