Afghanistan is one of the world’s most heavily landmine contaminated countries, and the impact to the civilian population as well as our military soldiers is the leading cause of injuries and death. A report was issued from the United Nations in October 2018 calling on militants in Afghanistan to stop using improvised explosive devices, “The killing and maiming of Afghan civilians by improvised explosive devises, particularly suicide devices, has reached extreme levels in Afghanistan.”

Rob Jones


We are seeing the decline of IED use in other areas of the world, but not Afghanistan, where it continues to rise. It is the weapon of choice the Taliban and the local Islamic State affiliate use to rein terror on both the local population and military forces.
The impact on military, police and even peacekeepers is incredibly disruptive. Americans military forces have trained personnel that understand these  explosive devices, and how to detect the IEDs that are meticulously buried in the Afghanistan landscape. Rob Jones was trained and specialized in finding these explosive devices and would typically work to secure the area prior to troops moving in. 
In Rob Jones words, I deployed to Habbaniyah, Iraq in 2008, and again to Delaram/Sangin, Afghanistan in 2010. During my deployment to Afghanistan while operating as a part of a push into Taliban territory, I was tasked with clearing an area with a high likelihood of containing an IED. It was in this capacity that I was wounded in action by a land mine. The injury resulted in a left knee dis-articulation and a right above knee amputation of my legs.”
It was now the moment of truth for Rob. Since failure was not an option, he quickly assessed the situation and determined the best cause of action for him was to focus on his family and friends⏤instead of his own problems and challenges. This would be one of the biggest keys to getting Rob over these upcoming hurdles he was sure to face as he set out to reclaim his life. And reclaim his life he did…

The Next Leap Forward

“I skipped all the doubting myself, being depressed, and feeling sorry for myself,” says Rob, “I just went straight to trying to achieve all that I wanted to achieve which was having a meaningful life.” Rob has achieved incredible feats, US Rowing Man of the Year, Rode bicycle 5200 miles across America raising money for wounded veteran charities. Ran 31 Marathons, in 31 Cities, in 31 Days. Raising tens of thousands of dollars for worthy causes, and as Rob says, “The Mission Continues”…

It Feels Like Nirvana: Thank you Justices Thomas and Alito

After Dark with Hosts Rob & Andrew – The ruling does not end abortion completely.
