Uploaded on May 21, 2009 - Army SFC Steven Holloway was a patrol leader on a mission to train Iraqi Police when his team was rerouted to assist at the scene of a deadly IED attack in Mosul, Iraq. After radioing for a Medivac, SFC Holloway went to the aid of a severely injured soldier and was immediately hit by a sniper's bullet. The Medivac he had called transported the injured soldier and SFC Holloway as well.

Arriving at the Forward Operating Base, the last thing SFC Holloway recalls is seeing the Army doctor leaning over him before falling unconscious for 10 days. After being transported to Landstuhl, Germany, Steven underwent several surgeries before being stabilized and transported to Walter Reed and eventually, Tampa VA Hospital. He has been left a paraplegic as a result of his injuries.

A Youth baseball coach, SFC Holloway enjoys hunting, fishing, barbecuing, and gunsmithing. He is presently completing a gunsmithing course and has hopes to return to school to finish his degree in Legal Studies.

SFC Holloway and his wife, Laurie and their three children presently live in a townhouse that does not have complete handicap accessibility. They are looking forward to living in a home that will allow Steven more independence. Steven hopes to not have to rely on others for some of his daily needs.
