Back in the Fight: Amputee Army Ranger Returns to Combat, Five Times!

Written by Doug Giles on May 9, 2013

Doug Giles- Check out my buddy Joe’s story and his new book, Back In the Fight.  He’s the only amputee in Army Ranger history to jump back into battle (five frickin’ times) after losing his leg.  Cowabunga.  Plus he’s a great young man who my daughter Regis and I have had the pleasure of hunting with from Alaska to Texas during our Purple Heart adventures. Please send this vid to your whiny nephew who squeals about how difficult his cushy life is.  Enjoy.
