This is the real iron man! Why? Just check the story below where you will glad to get to know about one soldier from our US army!
Soldiers, who serve in other countries, are doing a very honorable job fighting for their country and protecting innocent people. Unfortunately, their working environment is extremely dangerous, and everything can happen. They can be wounded or even killed. You will be deeply touched when you hear the story of a man who decided to change his career after the tragedy, which took place in 2011.
Greg Galeazzi was a captain in the US army, and now he is a first-year student at Harvard Medical School. He changed his uniform for a very different one. Greg was serving a year-long deployment in Afghanistan, and one day, something horrible happened: A bomb suddenly exploded near him while he was walking down the road. He lost his legs, and arms were severely wounded.
He spent a lot of time in pain and tears but managed to regain his strength and independence. Greg had around 50 surgeries and hours of physical therapy. After some time, he was accepted to Harvard Medical School. He soon met a beautiful girl Jasmine, and they are having a wedding next year.
Greg gives invaluable advice for those who have troubles by saying: Be patient. With time, things get better. Seven years before Greg Galeazzi put on a white coat at Harvard Medical School, he wore Army fatigues while serving a year-long deployment in Afghanistan.
In May 2011 a roadside bomb tore off Captain Galeazzi’s legs and much of his right arm, just a month before he was expecting to return home. “It felt like I was an empty coke can on train tracks getting hit by a freight train moving at 100 miles per hour,” said Galeazzi. Without a medic on the ground, there was no available pain medication.
“All I could do was scream,” Galeazzi recalled. “It’s hard to put into words that sickening, nauseating feeling to see that my legs were just gone.” Due to his unit’s remote position in northern Afghanistan, Galeazzi had little hope of receiving timely medical support. “I put my head back and just thought, ‘I’m dead,’” he said.
