From the battlefield to "Battleship": Lt. Col. Greg Gadson tells all

May 17, 2012

To say Greg Gadson has “seen it all” would be an understatement. The lieutenant colonel is a 24-year Army veteran who sustained injuries from a roadside bomb on May 7, 2007 that would forever change his life. But when you meet Greg, you’re not faced with a man who feels sorry for himself-- or one who wants you to feel sorry for him.  Instead, the double-amputee hero is a down-to-earth guy with positive energy and an optimistic outlook. And now that guy is about to take his real-life experience on the battlefield and make his Hollywood debut in “Battleship” opposite Brooklyn Decker. We caught up with Greg in Hawaii for his story of triumph and inspiration-- and with Brooklyn who told us about the impact Greg has had on her and her family.
