During his 10 deployments overseas with the U.S. Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment and other SOCOM elements, Captain Fleming has been wounded in combat on three separate occasions. He has undergone more than two-dozen surgeries, one of which resulted in a trans-tibial amputation of his left leg. While most would assume this type of injury would conclude military service, Captain Fleming was re-deployed five times since his injuries, each time serving in a combat operator position.
After serving with distinction and receiving numerous awards and decorations-including two Bronze Star medals with Valor and three Purple Hearts, he retired from active duty and still serves our country in other capacities.
He has completed marathons, triathlons, tough mudders and cycling events throughout the United States and is also a sought after motivational speaker. Numerous Fortune 500 companies have asked Chad to bring his message of resilience, perseverance, and his “Never Quit” attitude into their companies to help build their corporate teams.
He was a vital part of the 2010 Olympic Hockey teams run for the Gold Medal. Captain Fleming has spoken to both college and professional sports teams, and he is the spokesman for Under Armour’s “UA Freedom” initiative, a corporate initiative that raises money and awareness for our nations wounded veterans.
