Adam Hood

A motorcycle accident in 2007 changed Adam’s life, but not his adventurous spirit.  Now an active person with paraplegia, Adam was a welder before the accident and is now into wood turning.  Adam is a member of a water ski team and is anxious to try scuba diving, something he always wanted to do before…

Travis Sigmon

Corporal While on foot patrol looking for insurgents, a fellow soldier stepped on an IED, and Travis took most of the blast.  Waking up from a coma without his arm, and suffering other injuries from shrapnel, he returned home for recovery. Now he’s on a mission to be a Dive Pirate.

Matthew Arcadi
