Sgt. 1st Class Gregory A. Stube from Covington, Tennessee, was very seriously wounded during Operation Medusa in Afghanistan, September 2006. As his fighting vehicle moved up a hill, it was hit by an IED - seriously wounding Stube. Focusing on his wounds and pulling from his Special Forces medical training, Stube guided other SF A-team members in combat trauma care until he was moved out of danger.
He began his SF career when he volunteered and completed Special Forces Assessment and Selection in 1992 at the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School. He graduated the Special Forces Qualification Course as a SF medical sergeant, or 18D. This medical training includes extensive trauma management, surgery, anesthesia, orthopedics, pediatrics, pharmacology, OB / L&D, minor dentistry and limited veterinary medicine. Stube is also a certified Dive Medical Technician, trained at the Special Forces Underwater Operations Facility. Stube completed Russian language training as a part of his initial SF training program.
In addition to his service on the functional element of the “Green Berets,” known as the A-team, Stube served as a trainer for the Special Forces Advanced Urban Combat Course, and spent four years as Cadre in the distinguished John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School.
Stube joined the Army in 1988 as an infantryman. His wife, Donna, and their young son, Gregory Jr., reside in Cameron, N.C. His awards include the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, multiple Army Commendation Medals, multiple Army Achievement Medals, the Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the NCO Professional Development Ribbon, the Army Service Ribbon, multiple Expeditionary Medals, multiple NATO Medals, the Overseas Service Ribbon, the Expert Infantryman Badge, the Combat Infantryman Badge, Master Parachutist Badge, Romanian Parachutist Badge, the German Silver Marksmanship award, as well as the Special Forces Tab and many other notable military honors.
Today, Greg joins us in the midst of his newest mission in life -- his post-retirement objective of bringing home the leadership principles and values that he learned on the battlefield; and perhaps more significant, are those he learned in the hospital. His renewed purpose in life is the application of those principles and values to the betterment of our society, and the preservation of our outdoor culture. Greg’s unique perspective on life is most clearly captured in his new television series, “Coming Home with Greg Stube,” airing later this year on the Sportsman Channel.
