Going The Distance Despite Diabetes

Mark Thompson is one of U.S. Army’s best but there’s something that makes him stand out more than the rest, Mark has type 1 diabetes. Through his passion, drive, and will to prove his diabetes will not stop him, Mark has shown the military and himself that as a diabetic he can still service his country with honor and distinction.

Watch as Mark tells us how his diabetes didn’t stop him from reaching his dreams. Mark has proven this by earning a Bronze Star and believes that diabetics should have the opportunity to prove that they can be in control of their diabetes while performing military duties with no limits. Way to go Mark!
