Double amputee Iraq war veteran stuns judges with emotional performance

A former soldier who lost two limbs during his second deployment to Iraq rebuilt his life thanks to his love for fitness, and he shared his life journey in a touching performance that left everyone who watched it in awe.

Former US Army soldier Noah Galloway, 36, who lost his left leg and left arm while serving in Iraq had a remarkable run in “Dancing With The Stars”, with one particular unforgettable performance, Country Music Family reported

The former military has become an example to anyone with physical limitations, as he is determined to show that his war injuries have not prevented him from moving forward. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

After recovering from the injuries he suffered in 2005, caused by an explosive device, and overcoming depression and addiction, he reinvented himself as a fitness trainer and motivational speaker.

In addition to maintaining a strict exercise routine, caring for his three children and helping war veterans overcome their traumas, he showed his talent for dancing on American television, shredding false assumptions about amputees.

In 2015 Galloway joined DWTS for its 20th season, the 10th-anniversary edition of the competition series, with Sharna Burgess as his pro dancer partner. The duo finished third, but Galloway’s legacy lived on.

Galloway did a great job week after week, but his contemporary number set to Toby Keith’s “American Soldier” really struck a chord on both the audience and the judges, for the way it channeled Galloway’s life journey.

The pair executed an energetic and emotional performance, and after it was over, the judges praised Galloway for his ability to communicate complex and deep feelings in such an effective way, showing his great spirit in the process.

Taking part in the popular dance show, Galloway managed to share his message about misperceptions regarding people with disabilities, showing once more that by working hard and focusing people can keep pursuing a passion.
