A Blind Man Helps Others See the Light

Two years ago, US Army Captain Ivan Castro was serving in Iraq when he lost his eyesight in a mortar attack, but that didn’t stop him from living a normal life. Today, Ivan is an active duty captain in the Army, the only blind officer serving in the Special Forces—and a Spinning instructor.

Currently, you can find Ivan leading one of the classes for the Wounded Warriors Brigade in Fort Bragg, which is made up of wounded soldiers in various stages of recovery. Twice a week, the soldiers participate in Spinning classes as part of their therapy, and as a Spinning instructor, Ivan has been a role model to his brigade. 

Ivan is one amazing individual. He has forged ahead at full speed and has inspired others in similar circumstances to do the same.
