William Cassidy Little, known as Cassidy to everyone was born in Canada 29 years ago he moved to the UK to work in comedy, however funny he may be he decided to sign up and fight for the country he grew to love. In 2005? He joined the Royal Marine Commandos and was soon sent out to Afghanistan to fight for our country and that he did...
After returning from his first tour of duty and experiencing some of the world's atrocities he felt he could do more and trained as a Commando Medic. After passing the required training to become a medic he used his new found skills in the UK, whilst out training in the USA and back out on another tour of Afghanistan, July this year when reacting to the dreaded call for MEDIC!! Cassidy was blown off his feet by an IED there were 2 close explosions and the extent was devastating 2 men lost their lives and Cassidy along with others sustained life changing amputating injuries he has had his right leg amputated below the knee his left leg sustained multiple complicated open fractures, he broke his pelvis and partially detached the retina in the left eye.
Cassidy is now rehabilitating and recovering at Headley Court in Surrey and will join Royal Marine Hasler Company after he completes his limb fitting and walking re-education, his career as he knew it is over and for many this would be a hard blow but he has plans to study at Med school as he wants to be a Doctor and show he can give so much more.
Cassidy is such an inspiration to us all.
