12NovemberMilitary Family Day: Speaker John Kriesel
November 12, 2012 | 7:00 PM
Location : Dakota Room
When SSG John Kriesel lost his legs and two buddies in a roadside bomb explosion, no one expected him to survive. He died three times on the operating table. He went through thirty-five surgeries and months of recovery and rehabilitation. This is not just another war story. This is the story of an ordinary young man who overcame extraordinary challenges with a lot of help from others and he emerged stronger and more in love with his country, his wife, his children, and ultimately, his own life. Join us as he shares his extraordinary story!
This event is free for all students, staff, faculty and community members.
John will also be signing his book Still Standing.
