As a combat engineer in Afghanistan, Rob Jones was responsible for finding improvised explosive devices. In 2010, Jones was wounded in action by a landmine. The injury resulted in a left knee dis-articulation and a right above knee amputation. Jones was taken to National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD for the initial phases of recovery and then transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center for the remainder of rehabilitation. In 2013, Jones set out on his bike and cycled across America. In 2017, Jones ran 31 marathons in 31 days. This Marine Veteran has done all of this to raise awareness of Veteran issues, show what wounded Veterans are capable of, and raise money for select charities.
