On December 19th, 2005, Galloway lost his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee in an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack.

Through a long journey to recovery, Galloway saw that he could use his injuries as a way to connect with and inspire others.

Well known for his appearances on Dancing With The Stars and American Grit, he was recognized in 2014 by Men’s Health Magazine as the Ultimate Men’s Health Guy.

Galloway travels the country sharing his experiences with all audiences from school-age to veterans’ organizations and corporate gatherings. Before heading out on a national book tour for Living With No Excuses, he is bringing his story back to Fort Campbell to help recognize combat medics.

The 7th Annual Angels of the Battlefield will again honor the heroes among us who have performed lifesaving medical and trauma care on the battlefield. Since the inception of the Angels of the Battlefield Event six years ago, the Armed Services YMCA has honored over 100 Fort Campbell and 101st Airborne Division combat medics.

As the only event in the Fort Campbell community that recognizes the service of medics who are on the frontlines, the public is invited to attend. Tickets can be purchased for $40.00 each by visiting www.asymca-angels.eventbrite.com
