Bobby’s decision to serve in the infantry landed him in a dangerous spot in Afghanistan. His unit was severely outnumbered and sorely in need of reinforcements that never seemed to come.

“The reinforcements were supposed to be there three to four weeks after we got there, but it turned out to be five-and-a-half months,” Bobby explains.

“Something like 96 percent of all head casualties die in combat. I was familiar with that statistic even before I left, thanks to my mother,” Bobby says with a laugh. “She gave me far more statistics than I ever wanted to know.”

So when a Taliban bullet splintered his skull and passed through his brain, Bobby knew the odds of survival were not in his favor. “I thought I was going to die. I believe in God, and the fact that I’m still here is a miracle.”

“My mom was the biggest help. She runs something like eight or nine businesses, but she just stopped running all of them to be with me. She moved around with me from DC to Tampa, then to Fort Campbell, then back to Bethesda and Walter Reed, and down to Vanderbilt. She coached me through everything.”

Bobby also found support through Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) while he was in the hospital in Tampa. A WWP representative met him there and formed a strong bond that has taken him to a Soldier Ride™ in England and France where he was able to see Normandy.

Although he’s come a long way, Bobby still faces ongoing problems. “I’m at least 80 percent blind in my left eye,” he says. “I’ve lost about 30 IQ points. I’m still above average, but not as high as I was before. So a lot of things have changed, but you just learn to live with those and continue on.”

We are now donating a portion of every closing commission to WWP. Your referrals and business help those who have given their all to our country.
