While on combat patrol in eastern Afghanistan, Nathan was struck by an improvised explosive device. He lost both legs, one below the knee and one through the knee. He received a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for his actions. Thanks in part to Sentinels of Freedom (SOF), Nathan successfully transitioned out of the military to attend the Duke Fuqua School of Business, where he received his MBA. SOF supported Nathan with a furniture stipend to help him set up an office for his home while pursuing his education.
Nathan and his wife now live in Florida, where he works at a global investment bank.
