Seth Jahn

In October 2010, Seth Jahn was severely injured while in direct support of combat operations on his final deployment to Afghanistan as a member of the U.S. Army. After rehabbing and getting treatment, he was told he would not walk again. Jahn refused to accept that diagnosis and trained to regain movement in his lower body, which eventually resulted in an invite from the U.S. Paralympic Soccer team. Rio will be his first Paralympics.
