Board member Brad Snyder encompasses all of these values
Brad lost his sight to an IED while serving as an EOD Platoon Commander in support of Navy Special Warfare during combat operations in Afghanistan. He was clearing the path so his brothers could stay in the fight and has continued to clear his own obstacles by becoming a Gold Medal winner on the U.S. Paralympic Swim Team. Brad is the personification of a true Warrior and represents the very best of the Navy Special Operations family!
