Picture of Tom riding a hand cycle

Tom grew up in Reading, MI, and graduated from Reading High School in 1995. He graduated from Northwood University with a degree in Business Management in 1999. Tom joined the US Army Infantry in 2002 and was stationed in Germany for three years and served as a Team and Squad Leader during two deployments in Iraq.

On June 3rd, 2006, Tom was leading a night patrol when his Humvee was destroyed by an IED. Tom’s gunner was killed by the blast and Tom suffered extensive injuries including losing his left leg above the knee.

After 15 months at Walter Reed Hospital Tom went back on active duty as a Range Cadre at Fort Benning, GA. He taught soldiers in Basic Training how to identify IED’s in combat.

When he retired, Tom began the sport of HandCycling since he was unable to ride a regular bike. Over the past 4 years he has competed in races all over the world. He has won 7 marathons, 3 USA Paracycling National Championships, and is a member of the USA National Paracycling Team. Tom’s ultimate goal is winning a gold medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.

Tom uses his military experiences and handcycling to share his faith in God and to speak to youth groups, middle school classes, and churches.

This is sure to be an interesting and inspiring presentation.  Come join us at the museum at 7pm , Oct. 13!
