http://www.homesforourtroops.org/knapp - Army SPC David (Alex) Knapp was on his final mission in Iraq before going on leave when he lost both legs in an IED explosion on March 14, 2008. The convoy he was riding in was hit with an IED injuring soldiers and trapping SPC Knapp in the vehicle. After being removed from the truck by his squad, Alex was triaged for medevac and tried to refuse treatment when he learned his Team Leader was also severely injured.

After arriving at the Casualty Extraction Point, he fell unconscious and awoke nine days later to find himself at Walter Reed, not knowing he had arrived there via Landstuhl, Germany. Alex remains at Walter Reed still, as he receives therapy and treatments that will allow him to improve his mobility.

Alex hopes to eventually work in Counter-Terrorism. He enjoys mono-skiing, sled hockey and wheelchair basketball and looks forward to transitioning to civilian life and one day starting a family.
