Johnnie Yellock II was an Air Force Special Operator wounded on his second deployment to Afghanistan. On July 6, 2011, while operating in Eastern Afghanistan, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated beneath his vehicle. Yellock sustained crippling injuries to both legs and was able to assist his team with medical care and medical evacuation (MEDEVAC). He was no longer “The Tip of the Spear”. In an instant, he was set on a new path in life and has never looked back!
