Major DJ Skelton (USMA Class of 2003) was coined the “most wounded commander in U.S. military history” following devastating injuries suffered in combat while serving as an infantry platoon leader during the second battle for Fallujah.  After extensive treatment for his injuries MAJ Skelton returned to combat, serving as a light infantry Company Commander in Afghanistan causing him to later be dubbed “the most wounded commander in U.S. military history.”

MWI’s John Spencer sat down with Major Skelton to discuss the details of his unit’s part during the second battle of Fallujah, how he was wounded, his recovery, and post-traumatic growth.
