Nick Kimmel grew up in the small town of Moses Lake, WA. In 2008, Nick enlisted in the United States Marine Corps as a Combat Engineer. He was stationed in Japan after training. His time in service includes two combat deployments to Afghanistan. In December 2011 during his second deployment, Nick's platoon was tasked with building two small patrol bases in the Sangin Valley in Northern Helmand Province. On day four of the mission, Nick jumped off the forks of a forklift and landed on 40lbs of homemade explosives. Somehow, only 1/3 of the charge detonated. The blast instantly took both legs above the knee and his left arm above the elbow. After a long road of recovery Nick found himself with a renewed interest in golf. Next week Nick will play on his second Simpson Cup event. His story is about passion, drive and determination. Enjoy!
