A Green Beret captain working with a sniper team in Iraq of 2006, Castro was blown off an rooftop in combat. Although near death and blinded, a year later, he was running with a sighted partner in the Marine Corps Marathon, and fighting to convince the US Army to retain him in a support position so he could continue to serve his country. With the help of his wife and a growing circle of friends and supporters, Castro not only recovered, but took on new and exciting adventures. He went on to run 50 marathons, tandem bicycle races, HALO jumps, Invictus games, and a ski race to the South Pole with Prince Harry to raise awareness of the potential of wounded soldiers.
