Sgt. Steven Kiernan
Fredericksburg, VA

Marine Sgt. Steven Kiernan was deployed to Fallujah, Iraq when he suffered life altering injuries that caused him to lose both of his legs in May 2008. While returning from a security patrol and acting as Walking Point, the leading foot patrol, Sgt. Kiernan and his team were hit by an IED, creating confusion in what had moments before been an ordinary day, with children playing in the streets and people out and about.

When the dust cleared, life saving measures were being applied by a buddy who after tourniqueting both of Steven’s legs, helped load him into a HUMVEE to transport him to the Medivac and then to the hospital. Sgt. Kiernan was later transported to Germany and later to Bethesda Naval Hospital before eventually transferring to Walter Reed where he remains today while receiving rehab and physical therapy.

Sgt. Kiernan enjoys golf, poker, and SCUBA diving. He plans to further his education and looks forward to the day he can live in a specially adapted home and live more independently.
