San Diego Veteran is Living Life Stronger Than Ever

Nicholas (Nick) Kimmel, 25, has been back from Afghanistan for three years. While serving there, he lost two legs and now has the use of only one arm. Nicholas had Lasik surgery last week and feels strongly that his life has just begun. Nick needs both of his eyes to be as strong and useful as possible due to his other very serious physical challenges. He does not, and has not, let these “challenges” refuse him from enjoying some of the more “adventurous” sports for most of us i.e. paddle boarding, off-road driving, hunting, fishing. He also has a jeep wrangler that he takes to go rock crawling. Nick is a collector of classic cars. A resident and college student in San Diego, he is dependent on no one to maintain a regular and full life.
