Review for Operation Second Chance Inc, Germantown, MD, USA
After an IED exploded under my position in the truck bed, launching the GMV in which I was riding over 70 feet, back in August 2009, I was extracted from Afghanistan and given a 0% chance of living during the early days of my month and a half coma.
Luckily all of the doctors were wrong and against all odds, I not only woke from the coma, but was able to walk and talk again.
While I’m totally bummed that I’m no longer allowed to be a Marine Raider, I am beyond ecstatic to, not only be alive, but to have healed up so well that I’m virtually indistinguishable from a person who has never been injured.
Operation Second Chance has provided an immeasurable amount of help in keeping this adventure called life an endless string of excitement for me.
While everyone at Operation Second Chance unquestionably gives veterans a Second Chance at life, they are definitely Second to none!
A massive Thank You to everyone involved with Operation Second Chance, for all that you’ve done for me and everything that you continue to do for all of us! You are the best!
At the risk of sounding ridiculous, I must say: Operation Second Chance is so great that there have actually been times when I’ve felt lucky to have been injured so severely, as it afforded me the opportunity to get involved with such an amazing organization. Thank you OSC!
