In 2013, on his last deployment, a U.S. Army Special Forces operator was in an explosion that nearly killed him. After struggling through more than two years of therapy and countless surgeries he is still here today to share his journey.
Mark Belden, a retired Army master sergeant, shared his story with Malmstrom Airmen and it was one of courage, strength and resiliency.
For nearly 21 years, Belden served this country as a Special Forces operator. He described what it was like being shot, stabbed and blown up.
