Bill is also an author, having co-authored with Craig DeMartino “After the Fall: A Climber’s True Story of Facing Death and Finding Life”.
This inspiring book is about: “Craig DeMartino who was 100 feet up a cliff in Rocky Mountain National Park when―with one step―his 13 years of rock climbing experience and 15 pounds of gear plummeted with him to the ground. Expert climbers say that if you fall 10 feet you have a 10% chance of dying, a 20% chance at 20 feet, 30% at 30, and so on. Craig fell 100 feet. By basic calculation, Craig should not be alive today. But he is. For anyone who has been knocked down or run over by life, After the Fall not only offers an engaging read but also provides a clear message of hope: sometimes the greatest gift we can receive isn’t just healing, but the power to endure.”
Greg Stube – Special Forces Warrior, Speaker, and Author of Conquer Anything. A Combat-wounded veteran, after returning home and receiving extensive medical care, Greg’s inspiring story makes him a sought after speaker inspiring others to achieve their highest possible goals in both their professional and private lives.
Greg Allen Stube was born in Long Beach, CA in 1969. The son of a career Navy man, Greg Stube enlisted to serve in the US Army in 1988 as an infantryman. Greg was later selected to be part of an elite team of Green Berets in 1992, and trained as a Special Forces Medical Sergeant, 18D. Greg’s training was extensive and included:
During his years of service, Greg participated in the initial development of the Special Forces Advanced Urban Combat training doctrine and the 10th SFG(A) SFAUC course, where his weapons capabilities and shooting abilities remained at the core of Special Forces proficiency and competency throughout a career on the teams. Greg spent the 1990s, with the Special Forces, stationed in hostile fire zones.
While serving in Combat Operations in the Global War on Terror, Stube was wounded in Afghanistan during Operation Medusa. Stube’s A-Team encountered overwhelming numbers of Taliban fighters in The Battle of Sperwan Ghar, which lasted over a week. Stube’s wounds from a remotely detonated IED and enemy fire seemed fatal, but instead he survived to endure months of hospitalization and surgeries. Huge wounds to his abdomen, hip and pelvis eventually closed, his nearly severed leg was restored, and extensive full-thickness burns were grafted. On the path to a “miracle” recovery, Greg endured 17 surgeries and an 18 month hospital stay. Greg retired in 2011 after 23 years of dedicated service.
After returning home, Greg went on to host his own television show on NBC Sports titled Coming Home with Greg Stube. Because of Greg’s inspiring story of strength and perseverance, and his heartfelt communication style, he’s become a sought after speaker where he often leaves people thinking how they’re going to achieve their highest possible goals in both their professional and private lives. Greg has taken this same inspiring message and co-authored, along with Frank Miniter, a book titled Conquer Anything.
Greg is also a consultant and serves as a leadership presenter for the FBI and the FBI National Academy, in DC and Quantico. During his free time, Greg volunteers for various charity work.
