Nothing scheduled

On March 7, 2012 while on a routine patrol in Kuwait, the vehicle that Army CPL John Vail was riding in rolled over, ejecting him and then landing on top of him, resulting in a spinal cord injury and paralysis from the waist down. 

Following the accident, CPL Vail was flown to Landstuhl, Germany and then transported stateside to Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio where he spent almost two months. Eventually he was transferred to the James Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa for treatment of his spinal cord injuries and rehabilitative therapies for seven months.

John’s mother and father have been by his side throughout his recovery, cheering him on throughout every phase of progress. Another motivating factor contributing to John’s success is his son Brendon Michael; John dreams of running and playing football with him in the future.
