Chris Bowers enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in September of 2003. Chris was injured in Iraq in 2008, which resulted in the amputation of his left leg, a severely injured back, and a Traumatic Brain Injury. After years of physical rehabilitation, countless surgeries and procedures, Chris retired from the United States Marine Corps in November 2011.
The game of golf was key to Chris’ recovery. Having never played the game, Chris was eager to learn and grow both physically and mentally. His golfing journey led him to sit on two Board of Directors for national non profits, in an effort to help as many brothers and sisters as he could. Chris found his home with Leashes of Valor in 2021, and now serves as Programs Director, and the Valor Cup Tournament Director.
