Johnny Joey Jones was born on February 11, 1979, in Austin, Texas. He is a marine veteran who lost both of his legs during service in Afghanistan. He was injured in October 2003 when the truck he and other Marines were travelling in hit an IED (Improvised Explosive Device).
Jones’S Life Tragedy
Jones’s second injury occurred during Operation Enduring Freedom XI when he stepped on another IED while clearing out Taliban territory near Kandahar city.
His right foot was severed entirely off, but doctors managed to save it with microsurgery techniques; however, it could not reattach due to damage caused by shrapnel entering the bone marrow cavity during impact. So they amputated it above knee level.
After recovering from these injuries, Jones tried numerous times at physiotherapy sessions but couldn’t regain full mobility due to nerve damage caused by shrapnel entering his leg muscles; therefore, he had no choice but to end up walking on artificial limbs after several surgeries failed to restore muscle function or nerves connecting into his lower body tissues.
