His military career had an almost idyllic start. Following in his father’s footsteps, he signed up for the Infantry, and set out to do his part in the fight against terrorism and protect not just Americans, but also the continually oppressed. He even ended up sitting next to his future wife on the long flight from Infantry School to his first duty station in Alaska. But Eric Donoho’s time as an Infantryman would take a dark turn, literally the moment he stepped off the plane for a 14-month deployment to Iraq in 2006. During that deployment he survived blasts from two IEDs and one EFP, along with personal tragedy. The blasts would take their toll, leading Eric to early retirement from the Army, and eventually to the edge of taking his own life. Ironically, it was the shock of personal tragedy once again that pushed Eric forward to a place where he could heal and return to the husband and father he’d always hoped to be. Hear Eric Donoho’s moving story of combat and survival on this latest edition of HAZARD GROUND!
