Jason Roberts grew up with a desire: he would follow in the footsteps of his dad and join the United States Military to serve his country. After graduating from high school, a year early in January 2001, he enlisted into the United States Marine Corps. In a little over a decade of service, he deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom while assigned to Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC), 2nd Marine Raider Battalion (MRB), and as a Critical Skills Operator (CSO). On Aug 16, 2009, after conducting a Direct-Action Operation in Herat, Afghanistan his Humvee was struck by a command detonated IED. Of the six soldiers, two tragically died and Roberts sustained a collapsed lung, broken back, a shoulder injury, and lost the lower half of his right leg. He retired medically in October of 2011 but continued to serve the country through government contracting in support of Special Operations.
