Here’s a warrior’s tale involving a man named Taylor Morris who started out life as a kid who loved sports, extreme style. His high-octane athletics led him to the Navy’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal or EOD. The key in serving here is having calm nerves, which Taylor naturally possessed and is what made him such a good extreme athlete in the past. The mission of EOD is to deal with improvised explosive devices and weapons of mass destruction by defeating, attacking and exploiting them.

The pictures of Taylor in the beginning of the video show a great looking young man with his beautiful girlfriend. But in 2012, at only 23, things drastically changed, and the after photos of what happened are shocking to see.

Taylor lost both arms and legs, having stepped on a IED when leading a team of Army Specialists. He survived the blast and the aftermath of what life would now be like was naturally a mentally daunting challenge. We see Taylor begin with a fork and spoon strapped to what remains of his upper arm, eating food for the first time on his own. We then see Taylor advance into prosthetic limbs and the transformation is incredible.
What really stands out is this guy’s attitude. Most would be mentally defeated, and understandably so. But Taylor seems to always be in positive spirits, and apparently others acknowledged this as well and were both shocked and totally inspired by it, as no doubt you will be when you see this powerful video.

Another gem to this story is his girlfriend, who as you will see starts out by his side before the incident, and then after the devastating injury, she continues by his side. Taylor proposed to her last year.

Watch this heartfelt and hugely inspiring video which will surely show you how the human spirit can really trump all challenges, if you take on the strength of a Taylor Morris.
