SPC Christopher Brooks

Jonesborough, TN


On March 7, 2007, Army Specialist Christopher Brooks, on his second combat deployment, was serving with the 1451st Transportation Company as a driver when the vehicle he was driving hit an improvised explosive device (IED) in Baghdad, Iraq. SPC Brooks was knocked unconscious during the blast and had to be extricated from the vehicle. When he awoke, he could not feel his legs or walk. After rigorous physical therapy, Christopher has regained some mobility, but still does not have complete use of his legs.   

Originally from North Carolina, Chris is choosing to build his home in Tennessee for the peaceful nature.
