Description

In My Decision to Live, Nader Elguindi recalls the new direction his life took after suffering a horrific accident that severed both legs and caused him to permanently lose his right foot. At the time of the accident, he had been serving as a submarine officer in the U.S. Navy. After many surgeries and a great deal of rehabilitation, Nader continues his career in the U.S. Navy, eventually becoming the first naval officer to earn the coveted ?Dolphins? with a prosthetic leg. Following several appeals with the Navy's Physical Evaluation Board, Nader learns that his wish to remain as an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy has failed. Discouraged from the failure but not deterred in life, Nader stumbles into a business opportunity and starts his own information technology company. Nader's story comes full circle ten years after his tragic accident when he wins one of the largest small business contracts from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), a distinguished branch of the U.S. Navy.show more
