Mike and his Special Forces team were the first troops into Afghanistan just weeks after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Their mis- sion-Operation Enduring Free- dom-was to force the Taliban to surrender. When they infiltrated into Afghanistan, they brought with them the future president of the new Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai. After fierce battles, the Taliban leaders conceded defeat. Unfortunately, Mike and his team suffered a bomb-blast that injured or killed most of them. Mike was gravely wounded and suffered several injuries, includ- ing the loss of his right hand. His rehabilitation and transition to civilian life was incredibly challenging. The support of his wife, Judy, his Army family, and choosing a civilian job that al- lowed him to give back and help other veterans every day were key to his recovery.
