“THE MARK OF A PERSON IS NOT FOUND IN HIS PAST, BUT HOW HE OVERCOMES ADVERSITY AND BUILDS HIS FUTURE. QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION.” – Lt. Jason Redman, US Navy (Ret.)
Jason “Jay” Redman joined the Navy on September 11, 1992. He began his naval career at boot camp in Orlando, Florida.
On September 13, 2007, while acting as Assault Force Commander on an operation to capture an Al Qaeda High-Value Individual LT Redman’s Assault Team came under heavy machine gun and small arms fire. He along with two other Teammates were wounded in the ensuing firefight. Despite being shot twice in the arm and once in the face, as well as multiple rounds to his helmet, Night Vision Goggles, body armor, and weapon, Jason and his Team fought valiantly winning the fight, ensuring everyone came home alive.
While recovering at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, LT Redman wrote and hung a bright orange sign on his door. It became a statement and symbol for wounded warriors everywhere. This sign gained national recognition and earned LT Redman and his family an invitation to meet President George W. Bush in the Oval Office. The original sign on the door, signed by President Bush, now hangs in the Wounded Ward at the National Naval Medical Center Bethesda.
