Stephen Toboz

In 2002, Navy Seal Stephen “Turbo” Toboz was part of Operation Anaconda in Afghanistan to rescue a captured teammate. They were ambushed. Turbo was shot in the leg shattering his bones, making a fist-sized hole in his calf. He managed to crawl in 3 feet of snow, fighting pain, blood loss, and the -20 degree weather, all while providing cover fire for his team. They made it out 18 hours later and Turbo lost 3 liters of blood. While recovering, annoyed by the slow pace of his recovery, he asked the doctor to amputate his leg and give him a bionic leg. Nine months later, he rejoined his team and took part in active missions.
