Ryan Hendrickson is our guest, a retired U.S. Army Green Beret. Prior to enlisting in the Army, he served in the U.S. Navy and then the U.S. Air Force. While in the Army he became a member of the Elite Green Beret Special Forces and focused on Explosives Detection and Disposal. While deployed in Afghanistan in a combat zone he stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device and received devastating injuries. Ryan was set to have his leg amputated when he was approached with a new experimental limb-saving medical procedure, which he volunteered for.
After a long rehabilitation process, he convinced the Army to allow him to stay in a light-duty role. He was able to find a way to return to a combat role and returned to complete several deployments to war zones. He started journaling his recovery and eventually used that as the outline for his book "Tip of the Spear: The Incredible Story of an Injured Green Beret's Return to Battle".
Even more amazing, listen to how he continues to serve in war-torn countries as a civilian.
