What an absolutely insane story we have for you this week! On April 21st, 2007, Joshua Mantz was shot and killed by a sniper in Iraq. The exceptionally large bullet that killed Josh initially passed through a senior NCO standing next to him, and then severed Josh's femoral artery. After losing a significant amount of blood, Josh was dead for a full 15 minutes before a military trauma team resuscitated him, bringing him back to life. Mantz's journey from graduating West Point as an Infantry Platoon Leader to ultimately surviving a sniper's deadly shot in combat, and recovering through the mental highs and lows of such an uncommon ordeal is absolutely incredible.
