Cpl Paul Hedge


In 2010, Paul Hedge enlisted in the Army, inspired to serve after the 9/11 attacks and drawn to the discipline and camaraderie of the armed forces.

On June 1, 2012, during his first combat deployment, Corporal Hedge was serving as an airborne infantryman with the 1-501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade, 25th Infantry Division in Afghanistan, when he was shot multiple times during a complex insurgent attack on Forward Operating Base Salerno. He suffered gunshot wounds to both legs and shrapnel wounds to his upper and lower body, tinnitus, and TBI.

Paul was medically evacuated to Bagram Air Base and then transported to Landstuhl, Germany for additional surgeries. Stateside, he returned to Walter Reed Medical Center before moving to Brooke Army Medical Center for the remainder of his treatment.

Paul enjoys music and spending time with Hannah, his significant other.

Originally from Wisconsin, Paul is choosing to build his home in New Hampshire for the location and lifestyle.
