Paralympian Melissa Stockwell joined ROTC in college and was commissioned in the Army. In early 2004 she deployed to Iraq, and on April 13, 2004 her vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb. She became the first female to lose a limb in active combat.
Since then, she has become a three-time Paratriathlon World Champion and a bronze medalist from the 2016 Rio Paralympics. She is also a huge advocate of the Semper Fi & America’s Fund. She joins us this morning to share her story.
