#175 A changed identity with Eric McElvenny
Eric McElvenny is an endurance athlete and a retired Marine
Corps infantry officer. He deployed three times, and on his third
and final tour in Afghanistan, an IED took away his right leg below
the knee. Less than two years after stepping on the IED, he stepped
up to the starting line at the Kona Ironman and completed the race
in 11 hours and 54 minutes.
