The Spear

Combat, Recovery, and Resilience

In this episode of The Spear, MWI Deputy Director Maj. Noel Sioson is joined by retired Master Sgt. Cedric King. In 2012 in Afghanistan, on "a day just like any other day," as he describes it, his platoon got into a firefight during a patrol. When it ended and the unit continued its movement, he stepped on an IED. The blast cost him both of his legs. The most remarkable part of his story is his recovery and the resilience he exhibits.
