Retired US Army Staff Sergeant Luke comes from a military family and was proud to join the armed forces, serving two tours in Iraq.  The second tour ended when his group’s humvee came across an EFP-IED. Everyone in the vehicle suffered injuries, Luke receiving the worst losing one leg and severely damaging the other.  Twenty-nine surgeries later his salvaged leg and a prosthetic are the key to his mobility.  He recently wrote a book about his life’s journey and is an inspirational speaker.  His wife Stephanie Wernke is his buddy.

Luke and Stephanie trained with Dr Gabrielle K. Gabrielli of Life Worth Leading in partnership with Coral Reef Scuba, FL.
