“I said to the boys I don’t want to die here”

#TheHowieGames | From a kid growing up playing all sorts of sport, to a near-death experience in Afghanistan whilst serving his country, to Paralympic glory, Curtis McGrath is one seriously impressive customer. 

In this episode, Curtis lifts the veil on what life is like in the modern Australian army. What training involves, how deployment works and what life was like on the ground in Afghanistan for foreign troops. 

This is a humble man talking about mateship and courage, fear and pain, the spectre of death and the hope of life, and the benefits of never giving in…no matter how dire the situation may seem. 

Curtis has a new book out called Blood, Sweat and Steel. It’s phenomenal.
