Jason Redman didn't intend to inspire people with the note outside his hospital room, but he accidentally inspired thousands of people across the country.
The note Jason Redman wrote warned anyone entering his room that pity had no place inside. It reminded others that his life-threatening injuries had been inflicted in service of his country and that he fully intended to push himself to the utmost recovery. It was meant to protect himself from those who impeded his resiliency with pity. It turned into a message heard around the country that’s still inspiring others today.
Jason has come a long way since he earned his Navy SEAL Trident. His story is one of struggle, triumph, downfall, and redemption - all before he nearly died in Iraq.
