Captain Sam Brown's Inspiring Story – August 23rd, Hour 3
Written by kslmadmin on August 23, 2021
Army Captain Sam Brown is now a Senate candidate in the state of Nevada. He was deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan in 2008. A few months into this deployment, Sam’s vehicle was struck by an IED blast that severely wounded him. Upon immediate evacuation from the battle field, he began a long three year journey of rehabilitation and recovery. Sam was medically retired from the US Army as a Captain in September 2011, after more than five years of active duty service. Joining him is Tyler Merritt, CEO and Founder of Nine Line Apparel, Nine Line Foundation was founded in 2013 by CPT Tyler Merritt, USA, a member of the Army’s elite 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. In early 2013, after Tyler’s West Point classmate, then CPT Edward “Flip” Klein, lost three limbs fighting in Afghanistan, Tyler decided to do the same thing he did as a soldier: proactively look for solutions. In addition to personal support, Tyler got permission from the NLA Board, determining that a portion of all apparel purchases be donated to help defray the tremendous rehabilitation costs of CPT Klein and, in the process, began a journey to help severely wounded veterans regain their lives.
