Brett is an Army veteran from Indiana. He served 2010-2013 as an Infantryman, completing his basic training at Ft. Benning, Georgia and was stationed at Ft. Wainwright in Alaska.
In spring of 2011, Brett was deployed to Afghanistan. Meanwhile, his high school sweetheart and fiancée, London, made wedding plans for his leave in December. Seven months into active duty and a couple months before leave, Brett stepped on an IED. At only 20 years of age, he lost both legs from the blast. At the same time, the medic attending to Brett triggered another IED causing severe damage to Brett’s hands and arms. The medic lost his knee.
Brett was sent to Texas for recovery. After the facing the possibility of being a triple amputee, doctors were able to save both his arms and hands. London came to Texas and they were married just four days after Brett was released from the hospital.
In November, Brett and London will celebrate seven years of marriage. While he has prosthetics, Brett still struggles to get around comfortably outdoors. He enjoys being outside: golfing, fishing and hunting, and spending time hiking trails with family. He would appreciate the ability to do routine activities without all the hassle.
Brett believes the TUC Tracked Utility Carrier would be extremely beneficial for himself and his family. “I would enjoy time with my kids and enjoy the little things I used to do.”
