SPC Grady Bendel


On October 13, 2009, during his first combat deployment, Army Specialist Grady Bendel, a Cavalry Scout, was serving with the 8th Squadron,
1st Cavalry, 2nd Infantry Division, when his truck hit an improvised device (IED) in Spin Boldak, Afghanistan. He sustained damage to his right leg, nerve damage, and a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the blast. After several years of attempted limb salvage, Grady made the difficult choice to have doctors amputate his right leg below the knee.  

Grady is choosing to build his home in North Carolina.
