Calera, AL

Mission Accomplished on Sept. 28, 2015

On December 19, 2005, while on a routine mission near Yusufiyah in the “Triangle of Death” south of Baghdad, Army Sergeant Noah Galloway’s vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb that resulted in severe injuries, including the loss of his left arm above the elbow and his left leg above the knee. SGT Galloway woke up six days later on Christmas at Walter Reed Medical Center, beginning a challenging but inspiring journey of recovery.

Today, Noah is a motivational speaker, athletic trainer, and a dedicated advocate for veterans and amputees. He competed on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” finishing third overall with his partner, Sharna Burgess. His book, “Living with No Excuses: The Remarkable Rebirth of an American Soldier,” was released in August 2016. Additionally, Noah is passionately involved with F45 Training, a global fitness community specializing in high-intensity group workouts that are fast, fun, and results-driven. Noah created the No Excuses Charitable Fund to support organizations committed to veterans and wellness. He is also committed to paying it forward by advancing the mission of Homes For Our Troops throughout the country, helping to ensure severely injured Veterans have the homes and support they need.

Noah and his wife, Amanda, are living happily in Calera, Alabama. Their home life is filled with joy and activity with their children. Their eldest son, Colston, has recently joined the Coast Guard and moved out, making everyone incredibly proud. At home, Jack is preparing for an early high school graduation next year, Rian is set to enter high school, and their youngest, Matthew, is enjoying his toddler years.

Their specially adapted custom home provides a safe, barrier-free environment that supports Noah’s independence and well-being. As a role model and source of inspiration, Noah continues to influence others through his resilience and commitment to living with no excuses.
