Hero Week Day 6: Tenacious D

Ryan Job (Navy Seal) survived 20 firefights. But then a sniper’s bullet hit his gun sending shrapnel into his face, causing blindness in 2006. After that, Job climbed Mt. Ranier, trained for a triathlon, and helped other wounded veterans by championing Camp Patriot. Tragically, Ryan died in 2009 from injury complications.

Simply put, Ryan Job represented tenacity and courage.

Chris Kyle wrote the book American Sniper in honor of Ryan Job and Marc Lee (who died in the same fight). “I’m no hero. The reason I agreed to write American Sniper is to raise awareness for our guys in combat, to show the hardships they face and the sacrifices they and their families make. The real heroes are guys like Ryan Job and Marc Lee who gave everything for their country.”
