Aubrey Hand, Senior Airman, U.S. Air Force (RET)

An Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast in Afghanistan in August 2012 resulted in Aubrey becoming a below the knee amputee. Aubrey was first introduced to Move United at a golf clinic and has also participated in the Navy 5 Miler, Bataan Memorial Death March, and The Hartford Ski Spectacular. Adaptive sports has allowed him to test the limits of what he calls “the new me.” “It allows me to feel as if I’m no different than anyone else. The mechanics may be different, but I can prove to myself that I can overcome anything I put my mind to.” The Purple Heart recipient resides with his wife and son in South Carolina.
