Kevin is a former Green Beret with two combat deployments to Afghanistan. On September 25, 2011, Kevin was shot in the abdomen while on a patrol. Pinned down by enemy fire, an Afghan commando risked his life to save him.

Kevin was left with some debilitating injuries that required six surgeries and thousands of hours of physical therapy. There were points where it was doubtful he’d ever walk again.
Kevin fought back and eventually regained the use of his injured leg. It’s a great story of how the will to survive continues after the bleeding has stopped.

Nowadays, Kevin is thriving. His recovery was never easy but he pushed forward and was admitted to both the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government where he completed SIMULTANEOUS master’s degrees.

I mean…seriously.
