Pirate Spotlight

Petty Officer Sean Ryan
US Navy

Sean had a very successful career in the Navy, spending many of those years in special ops. After leaving the service he suffered a gunshot wound to the chest at point blank range, causing paraplegia. He loves to swim and keeps in shape, a father of three children who strives to be a role model for them by living an active life after injury.
