Listen to “Marine Sergeant Zachary Stinson” on Spreaker. 


On November 9, 2010, Zach Stinson, a Marine fighting in Afghanistan, stepped on an IED. The blast took both of his legs, and a few fingers. But, the blast did not take his zeal for life. Listening to him talk about this experience, you would never think that he’s faced great challenges and extremely low moments trying to get back to the normalcy of everyday life. He has handled his injuries with the same bravery and stoicism he displayed when taking “point” while searching the village compound that hid the IED that changed his life forever. He’s even looked past his injuries and “limits” and started competing in triathlons as a double amputee. Zach Stinson’s story is amazing, and one we all can take inspiration from, no matter what our station is in life. He credits being introduced to hunting as a major part of his recovery and has now hunted all over the world.
