Ryan Job Hero WOD
Ryan Job Hero WOD Memorial Challenge
The stories of individual sacrifice are seldom ever told, here is one of them…
“Ryan was a courageous warrior who constantly risked his own life to fight and protect teammates”, Lt. Cmdr. Leif Babin of SEAL Team 3.
Ryan survived more than 20 firefights in Iraq. Ryan was covering a crew of about 25 SEALs when a sniper’s bullet struck him in the face.
“When I got there, it was such a catastrophic wound,” Babin said. “His whole right eye was gone.”
Ryan kept his composure, sat himself up and tried to comfort his teammates, telling them he would be OK. Ryan survived and overcame his wounds and blindness to climb Mt. Rainier with Camp Patriot in 2008, in October of the same year he successfully hunted a trophy Elk. On Sept. 24, 2009 we lost Ryan. He died as a result of a hospital error after an operation to repair his eye.
Ryan was a highly decorated Navy SEAL, a hunter, a mountaineer, a husband and a father to a daughter that he never had a chance to meet. Ryan was a great friend and inspiration to us all. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was Ryan’s teammate and wrote The New York Times Best Seller, American Sniper, in Ryan’s honor.
