(CLEVELAND) A Cleveland veteran will ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange today. 

Arthur "J.J." Johnson, a U.S. Marine who served form 1969 to 1971,  had a stroke leaving his left arm paralyzed. He says, he can now use it thanks to a robotic arm. The device is made by Myomo, which went public this week.
