On Saturday, October 3rd, a fantastic new show premieres on ESPN2.

“Grateful Nation is a unique and compelling outdoor adventure series that goes behind the scenes and into the field with American Veterans. Hosted by Airborne Ranger Tim Abell, this original unscripted program takes viewers inside the minds of wounded combat veterans and returns them to their traditional American hunting heritage.

Tim’s innovative interviewing strategy together with stunning HD videography launches Grateful Nation into a unique category that captures a whole new audience of sportsmen and patriots.”

The first episode of “Grateful Nation” follows actor and Army Veteran Tim Abell and Army Sergeant First Class Greg Stube on the hunt of a lifetime.

...From his bio:

In September of 2006, SFC Stube was very seriously wounded during Operation Medusa in Afghanistan.

On a hill called Sperwan Ghar, in southwest Afghanistan, Stube and fellow Special Forces team members were involved in a massive attack by enemy Taliban forces that had dug in, waiting for a fight. As his fighting vehicle moved up the hill, days after the fighting had begun; 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. His awards include the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. Currently assigned to the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Public Affairs Office, Stube continues to serve within his capabilities to promote awareness of the commitment and sacrifice of American service members and their families. In a program called “Service Beyond Sacrifice,” Stube endeavors to relate to Americans about why service to our country is not only important, but worth sacrificing for.
