Don't believe in Miracles??? Shot through the head in Afghanistan. Retired DEA Agent Joe Piersante survived. Despite his severe injuries, including blindness he lives an inspiring life.
Joe Piersante is our guest. He is a retired DEA agent. During his career he was a member of the DEA's FAST (SWAT team) assigned to Afghanistan. Their mission was to eradicate Poppy fields and the industry that turns it into Heroin. That DEA team in Afghanistan encountered numerous violent confrontations with members of the Taliban and those involved in the Heroin industry. During one of those deployments he was shot through the head with a high velocity machine gun round. Though many of his team thought he was killed, thanks to a miracle plus great first aid and surgical teams he survived. His severe injuries, including total blindness have not stopped him. He is a world class blind bodybuilder and much more.
