A 30-year-old Alabama Army veteran is hoping to use his disabilities to inspire others to achieve their goals of success. According to CNN News, he is hoping to show people a “happy and healthy way of leading their life.”
The soldier’s story started during his second tour of Iraq in 2005. During his tour, he and others were taking a fleet of Humvees to pick up the rest of their platoon. A roadside bomb hit the vehicle that the soldier was driving, taking the soldier’s left arm and leg. He also received severe facial injuries as a result of the blast.
He woke up four days later in a Maryland hospital where he would recover from his Alabama Veterans Disability for the next several weeks. Upon his release, he used his injuries as motivation to get himself in top shape. He began an intense workout regimen, and plans on participating in several extreme races to motivate others to achieve their goals.
He states “If I can show them the route I took to success, then they can follow the same, and that makes me feel good.”
The Birmingham Personal Injury Lawyers with Norris Injury Lawyers are inspired by this young man’s will to live and overcome the obstacles of life. The firm would like to congratulate him on his achievements and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
