On December 19, 2005, Noah Galloway was driving the lead truck in a small convoy when his vehicle was struck by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Iraq’s “Triangle of Death.” Taking the brunt of the blast, Galloway was severely injured and ended up losing his left arm and leg. The loss of two limbs devastated the former standout athlete and fitness guru. So much so that it sent him into a downward spiral of excessive drinking and depression. Noah eventually hit rock bottom, and when he did, he rebounded with zeal and surpassed the image of what he once was. Noah looked beyond his darkest moment and his injuries, and fought to get himself back into excellent physical shape, eventually becoming a competitive adventure race athlete, personal trainer, author, and motivational speaker. He was even named the 2014 Ultimate Men’s Health Guy by Men’s Health magazine, gracing the cover of that year’s November issue. Noah’s story is one of resiliency and inspiration, and one that many to this day draw strength from. This is one account of combat and survival you don’t want to miss!
