Captain Jonathan Silk

This is an interview with Captain Jonathan Silk, who was seriously wounded in Iraq on April 9, 2004. After surgery to replace his mitral valve, he has made a miraculous recovery and is now competing in a Half-Ironman event in New Orleans on April 5, 2009, almost 5 years to the day after his injury. He is participating in this event to not only raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, but to represent his fellow wounded service men and women who are unable to represent themselves in such an event as this.
