Sgt Kenneth “Dylan” Gray
Mission Accomplished on October 22, 2011
Marine Sgt Kenneth “Dylan” Gray was on his third deployment when he was left a double amputee after driving over an anti-tank mine in Al Qaim, Iraq in February 2007. Waking up in the hospital in Germany, Sgt Gray had no recollection of the blast that tore through his HMMWV; his legs being blown off upon impact. He was quickly medevaced to a hospital in Al Asad and then to Landstuhl, Germany and spent the next few months at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.
Dylan is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys four-wheeling, snowmobiling, biking and rock crawling. He also enjoys metal fabrication.
Sgt Gray is now living in his Homes For Our Troops specially adapted home where he can use his wheelchair without worrying about not being able to access all areas independently. He says that knowing that so many Americans are willing to support our injured Veterans as they begin the next chapters in their lives is “one of the reasons to get up and push-on every day. Thank you!”
