Army Ranger, Double Amputee Describes How He’ll Never Quit | Task&Purpose

He wants to quit every day. He never does.

Obstacles…

Army Master Sgt. Cedric King has run into and stomped some of the worst.

King tried and tried, failed and failed, to become an Army Ranger. Then became a Ranger.

King went on to serve in Afghanistan, two tours, the second being cut short July 25, 2012, when an improvised explosive device claimed both legs, caused major internal injuries, permanent loss to part of his right arm and hand, and ended a 20-year military career.
