You Only Need To Take One Look At What This SEAL Wrote On His Hospital Door To Know What Valor Is
This is the kind of hero we need now more than ever.
This is a photograph of a note that Lt. Jason Redman, a Navy SEAL, posted on his hospital door as he recovered at Bethesda Naval Medical center after being severely wounded in a firefight in Fallujah, Iraq.
He endured 37 surgeries.
The note says:
Attention – To all those who enter here
If you are coming into this room with sorrow or to feel sorry for my wounds, go elsewhere.
The wounds I received, I got in a job I love, doing it for people I love, supporting the freedom
of a country I deeply love. I am incredibly tough and will make a full recovery.
What is full? That is the absolute utmost physically my body has the ability to recover. Then
I will push that about 20% further through sheer mental tenacity. This room you are about to
enter is a room of fun, optimism, and intense rapid regrowth. If you are not prepared for that

Lt. Redman went on and wrote a book entitled The Trident: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader.
If you purchase a signed copy of Lt. Redman's book here, you will also be purchasing one for a wounded warrior.
Lt. Redman also founded Wounded Wear, whose mission statement is simple:
"We provide free clothing and modifications to wounded warriors and raise national awareness of their sacrifice."
You can also check out Lt. Redman on Facebook and take a look at his website, SOFSPOKEN.
