No Turning Back

The word “conquer” has taken on a new meaning for Bryan Anderson, a former U.S. Army sergeant. During his service in the Iraq War, it meant taking down the enemy. After losing both legs and an arm as the Iraq War’s fourth triple amputee from a roadside explosive, what he had to conquer got a bit more personal.

Anderson detailed his story this fall of courage, hope and determination during his presentation, “No Turning Back,” in Bloomsburg University’s Mitrani Hall, sponsored by the Disability Advisory Committee.
