His fellow troops taught him how to survive and take better care of himself. It was also there that his vehicle was hit by an IED, breaking his right leg and splitting his foot open 2 inches. Two surgeries and an infection later, Chris and doctors were forced to amputate his limb before infection spread throughout his body. At 22, Chris has overcome more than most will experience in a lifetime. Although he was forced to lose a leg, he has not lost his drive and positivity. He wears a smile like it‚Äôs his best accessory. He has no regrets about his decision to join the Army expressing that if had not been for the support of his family and fellow soldiers, he would probably still be in a state of confusion about his life.¬† Chris plans to head back to his home station in Germany soon with hopes to gain a degree in Criminal Justice so that he can one day work for the CIA or FBI. Millennium was pleased to bring a smile to such a deserving face. It is our mission to support the war fighter both pre and post war.
