One-On-One With U.S. Army Special Forces Cpt. Ben Harrow On Life After Losing Both Legs While Deployed In Afghanistan

Must Read

Retired U.S. Army Captain Ben Harrow was first deployed to Iraq for 15 months in 2006. When he returned, he entered the Special Forces and was sent to Afghanistan’s Uruzgan province to lead a team of Green Berets. On his third deployment, also in Afghanistan, he stepped on an IED and lost both of his legs above the knee. It looked like he was to be wheelchair bound for the remainder of his life but, determined to walk again, he elected for extensive rehab and a bone regeneration surgery. His surgery worked so well that it has become the new standard at Walter Reed for soldiers with similar injuries. He is able to walk with the use of prosthetics and even play lacrosse again, like he did on the varsity team at West Point.
