Sgt. 1st Class Josh Olson

Fort Benning, GA – Nine years after losing his leg in a rocket-propelled grenade attack while on patrol in Iraq, Sgt. 1st Class Josh Olson has reinvented his Army career. Going from an Infantry squad leader to a wounded warrior, he is now a Paralympic shooter.

What he didn’t expect was to discover a marksmanship talent that would lead him to make history at the Paralympic Games. «Read the rest of this article»
