An Army Ranger who served twice in Iraq and once in Afghanistan was on his way to his fourth overseas tour when his left hand was blown off in a training accident, NPR reports .
Justin Slaby, who was fitted with a state-of-the-art prosthesis, opted to join the FBI but said he couldn’t believe what happened next.
But six weeks into his 21-week program, the FBI said Slaby wasn’t cut out for the job and couldn’t safely handle a weapon, NPR reported.
“Let me go to the firing range, and I’ll show you what I can do,” he said, according to NPR.
When that didn’t work, Slaby hired an attorney.
