Iraq War vet amputee debuts on “Dancing With The Stars” [VIDEO]

Whether you’re a fan of ballroom dancing and sequins or not (and we now know some ISIS fighters might be), you cannot be unmoved by the grace, courage and (since I’m a woman I can say this), magnificence of this man.

Per the bio on this website, “Sergeant Noah Galloway was assigned to the 1st of the 502nd Infantry of the 101st Airborne Division out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky during Operation Iraqi Freedom.”

“Just three months in to his second tour of duty, he experienced a life changing injury. On December 19, 2005, Galloway lost his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee in an Improvised Explosive Device attack. He was transported to Germany to receive medical treatment, remaining unconscious for five days.”

“Galloway woke up late in the evening on Christmas Eve to learn he lost two of his limbs and sustained severe injuries to his right leg and his jaw. Galloway was then transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC.”

“After a long stint in recovery and rehabilitation, Galloway did what many disabled veterans do, becoming withdrawn, out of shape and depressed. The former fitness fanatic and hyper competitive athlete was now drinking, smoking and sleeping his days away. But late one night, Galloway took a long look in the mirror and realized there was more to him than the injuries. And he set a goal to get back in shape, be healthier and inspire others.”

Wow, has he ever. Noah embodies the very best of American exceptionalism. His own motto is no excuses, and he clearly lives that to the very fiber of his being.

Airborne!

As a AKA (Above Knee Amputee ) myself I was overjoyed that this warrior challenged himself and showed the world the possibilities with his shear will-power. This is a true hero and roel model to all especially the disabled community!!!
DANCE ON WARRIOR, DANCE ON.

If only the current Commander-In-Chief had the same attitude as Galloway. . .
