Redmond Ramos followed in his two brothers footsteps and left to the military at 18 years old to become a Navy Corpsman (combat medic) with The Marines. He was deployed to Afghanistan as a combat replacement for 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, where he stepped on an improvised explosive device and lost his left leg. Redmond came home and decided to begin a life of motivating others and competed in track and swimming internationally for Team USA Invictus Games, Endeavor Games, and Warrior Games, as well as competing on The Amazing Race and Triumph Games.
“I was fortunate to get back on my feet and compete in the Warrior Games only seven months later, bringing home five medals”. -Redmond Ramos
