Ryan Hendrickson doesn’t know when to quit. If you’ve served alongside Ryan in combat, that’s probably a good thing. Ryan Hendrickson is a retired Green Beret, leaving the Army as an E-7 in January of 2020. Before joining the Army, Hendrickson enlisted and served in both the Navy and the Air Force, until he found his true calling in Special Forces. As a Green Beret demolitions expert, he would find a passion hunting IEDs and working with local villagers. In the high risk confines of Afghanistan, that work would also lead to Hendrickson nearly losing his leg, if not for an experimental limb salvage procedure and an Army surgeon willing to take the risk. Hendrickson then fought through painful rehab to deploy back to Afghanistan roughly eighteen months after his initial injury. As if that wasn’t enough, in 2016 Hendrickson was involved in a brutal firefight in which his actions would earn him the Silver Star. Even after his retirement, Ryan still continued to deploy to high risk areas as a civilian. See now why we said he doesn’t know when to quit? In all seriousness, this is a story about service, about fortitude, about resilience, and about taking care of those who fight beside you. Hear Ryan Hendrickson’s inspiring story of combat and survival on this latest episode of HAZARD GROUND!
