Tripple amputee/AFG veteran
This is a Recon brother, Cpl. Todd Love of 1st Reconnaissance Bn. He lost both legs and an arm to an IED in Afghanistan. This is a video of him with team X-treme who raises money for wounded warriors. In this video you will see him scuba diving, surfing, and scuba diving. Hes done more tandems and is working on figuring out a way to do AFF. He has also been on the show gator boys, wrestling an aligator, and drove in a demolition derby. Now that is determination. He has expressed interest in skydiving solo and going for his A-license. Anyone have any points of contact I can reccomend for him?
Yes, we (Team X-T.R.E.M.E.) are working on getting Todd into AFF and all the way up to his A-license. Here's some more video of him in the Paraclete XP tunnel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TLKNuKjd94&feature=plcp
And here's a link to the page talking about Operation X-Wing, which is the program aimed at training wounded warriors to skydive: http://www.team-x-treme.org/#/operation-x-wing/4567169868
Please send me a message and I can put you in contact with Todd.
Take a look at the post above reference BLESMA Trans4mers, were doing the same thing in the UK with our wounded warriors. What can better being taught to jump by 2 UK green berets, were in bound to Elsinore in 2 weeks.
Just a quick update to this thread for anyone who's been living under a rock for the past three months. Todd did his entire AFF in about three days here in AZ and left here with an A license. Great kid. There are tons of video and pics of it in Parachutist and elsewhere online.
