Utah Stories

Gordon Ewell, Salt Lake City

(Nominated by Paul Swenson)
Utah State Capitol Building
August 2, 2011

Gordy was on explosives detail in Iraq early in conflicts. He was blown up 7 times and survived. The last one changed his life. He wrote instructions that are still used today to assist in defusing IEDs and other Iraqi style bombs.  He is very patriotic and cheerful while still very much suffering. A true, true hero!!!
