Kirstie Ennis Takes on Mt. Denali to Help House Veterans
My name is Kirstie Ennis. I have not been on this Earth long, but I have been through more than most would in a lifetime. I served six years in the United States Marine Corps as a helicopter door gunner and airframes mechanic. On June 23, 2012, during my last deployment to Afghanistan, I was involved in a helicopter crash and suffered a traumatic brain injury, severe facial trauma, a left leg above the amputation, damage to my cervical spine and my upper arms. It was the defining moment in my life.
