11 years ago this week, when I was serving as a bomb technician under Joint Special Operations Command in the Army, my life changed forever. I lost both legs and a finger when a roadside bomb blew up beneath me while in the Kandahar region of Afghanistan.
If it weren’t for the bravery and selflessness of my fellow soldiers, and the grace of God, I very well could have lost my life.
What I remember most clearly from that day is my fellow soldiers sprinting towards the bomb instead of away from my motionless body. They rushed in the direction where an explosive device had just detonated, putting their own lives in danger to save mine.
While I may have lost my ability to continue being an asset on the battlefield that day, I didn’t lose my drive to keep fighting for our amazing country. So, I learned to walk again, graduated from college, and set my sights on a new mission: restoring America First greatness to the United States.
On this anniversary of that explosion, will you help me win this latest battle for the future of our country?
