Sure, it sounds like a cheesey, bullsh*tty title but it's an accurate representation. This dude is a modern-day warrior, with a mindset that can only be developed in the middle of extreme adversity, discomfort and pressure. Nick Lavery is an active-duty member of The United States Army Special Forces. Commonly known as Green Berets, the Special Forces perform critical missions including direct action, counterinsurgency, foreign internal defence, special reconnaissance, and unconventional warfare. Although Nick sustained life-threatening injuries in combat, resulting in an above-the-knee amputation of his leg, he not only remained in the Army, he returned to his Special Forces Detachment and continues conducting combat operations to this day. I genuinely loved chatting with Nick and hope you enjoy the conversation too.
