AUSA’s Army Matters Podcast

The Importance of Getting Back Up Again… and Again… and Again

October 10, 2022

Throughout Master Sergeant (Ret.) Cedric King’s Army career he always faced challenges head on. His biggest obstacle, however, took place in 2012 when he was
injured by an IED device and lost his legs. But rather than feeling sorry for himself, he accepted it and is now a triathlete, author and motivational speaker. Host
Colonel (Ret.) Scott Halstead talks to Cedric about the superheroes that inspired him at Fort Bragg, how hard it is to learn to walk again, and how a trip to a mini-mall
changed his life.


Guest: MSG Cedric King, United States Army Retired

Host:  COL Scott Halstead, United States Army Retired
