SGT Nicholas Firth

York, SC


On June 9, 2006, during his first combat deployment, Army Sergeant Nicholas A. Firth, an Infantryman with 2-22 Infantry, 10th Mountain Division, was supporting Battery B, 5th Battalion, 113th Field Artillery Regiment, when his truck hit an improvised explosive device (IED) in Balad, Iraq. He sustained severe damage to his right leg and a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the blast.  

After several years of attempted limb salvage, Nick made the difficult choice to have doctors amputate his right leg below the knee.   

Nick is choosing to build his home in South Carolina to live close to family. 

Full bio coming soon.
