FISHER, Ind. – Sgt. Joe Johnson survived a tour in Afghanistan, but did not come home completely unscathed.

According to Daily Mail, he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and rode motorcycles for the rush.

Johnson cannot feel anything below his chest and is confined to a wheelchair.

When he met Michelle, he realized that he wanted to do the impossible.
