Searching for a higher purpose, and a sense of selflessness and brotherhood, Rob Jones enlisted in the Marine Corps at 20, while still attending college at Virginia Tech. His sense of purpose and the warrior mentality that the Corps gave him were put to the test after he sustained devastating injuries on July 22, 2010 in Afghanistan. While sweeping a field for suspected IEDs, Jones stepped on a land mine. The blast would leave him a double amputee. What most people see as insurmountable, Rob Jones saw as just another challenge. He has since faced down that challenge, making a quick recovery and going on to become a bronze medal Paralympian, among other amazing feats, including running 31 marathons in 31 days! And now he hopes to carry on that warrior mentality as a leader in Washington – he is currently running to represent the 10th District of Virginia in the U.S. Congress. Hear about Rob Jones’ incredible and inspiring journey on this latest edition of HAZARD GROUND!
