Greg is a Buena Park, CA native. He joined the Army in 1986 and served overseas in Germany in an artillery battery. In 1990, while on active duty, Greg was hit by a drunk driver while crossing a street. The incident resulted in the amputation of Greg’s left leg below the knee.

Greg did not let the loss of his leg slow him down. He remained active in sports throughout his rehabilitation and in 2003 discovered a passion for competing in outrigger canoeing.

In 2008, Greg became part of the CAF Operation Rebound team. With CAF’s support, Greg attended the World Canoe Sprint Championships in New Caledonia and the Paracanoe World Championships in Poland where he won a Silver Medal.

“CAF Operation Rebound gives injured veterans an opportunity to achieve great heights in our athletic endeavors through generous grants and unselfish support of our goals.”-Greg Crouse
