War has a way of changing all who face it. Most often the heavy burdens, emotionally, physically, and mentally, are not shared with the public.
Meet Noah Galloway, a Purple Heart Recipient who was a Sergeant with the 101st Airborne Division and suffered life-threatening injuries from an IED attack during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Go on the journey of a man, who at points, was left questioning his own humanity as well as the humanity of those surrounding him. It's a very gritty, honest, and revealing insight into what real combat is and can become. Noah was able to find physical and mental wellness as he overcame traumatic depression to find solace in his passion for physical fitness.
