SGT Tyler Sloan

Rockport, TX


On February 5, 2006, Army Sergeant Tyler Sloan was on his first combat deployment with the 172nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team in Mosul, Iraq when he was shot in the lower abdomen by a sniper. He credits the quick response of his team with saving his life. In a coma for six days, Tyler suffered nerve damage in his left arm, back and knee complications, and internal injuries.

After three years of limb salvage, his right leg was amputated. Tyler has undergone over 43 surgeries in the past 17 years.

Tyler is choosing to remain in Texas for the quality of life.
