Wounded Warrior Army Staff Sergeant Chris Gordon, September 2013Wounded Warrior Chris Gordon

September 2013 - On March 13, 2005, Army Staff Sergeant Chris Gordon was riding in a Stryker armored vehicle as part of a patrol in the Iraqi town of Tal-Afar. It was on that morning when an improvised explosive device (IED) explosion literally launched Chris and his clerk out of the Stryker's back hatch.

Chris remembers being taken to the combat-support hospital nearby, but the next thing he knew, he was waking up at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He was left without his right leg and with a permanent titanium rod in his left leg. "Rehab has been intense," he said. "At first you're in a wheelchair and eventually you start gaining back your strength. You have to learn how to get up, use a prosthetic and learn how to walk again, actually. Today, Chris does much more than walk. He's standing tall as a father, husband, and student.
