Adam endured more than 130 surgeries and spent 5 years recovering from the injuries he suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle in Afghanistan. Corey lost his legs and left-hand fingers to a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Kyle stepped on a land mine and lost both legs above the knees and had other serious wounds in Afghanistan.
