Colonel Gregory D. Gadson, Director of the U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program. More than 20 years service and served in every major conflict of the last two decades. COL Gadson was severely injured by an IED, lost both legs above the knee, and severe damage to the right arm. This is not a sad story. It is a story of a hero and a soldier. DONATE TO WOUNDED WARRIORS!
