Five years ago Jonathan's life changed forever when a bomb exploded under him in Afghanistan. The recon-marine lost both legs, a hip and had other severe injuries from the blast. On March 3rd FISH dropped by his home south of Augusta, KS with a brand new motorized chair with tracks on it to give to Blank. Jonathan says, "It's a pretty cool device. I'll find a use for it, for sure. It's going to help me get around and keep me out of the dirt and muck. You know before, I would get trapped with my smaller wheelchair." Blank likes hunting and fishing and he will be able to enjoy the outdoors once again.
