An Unstoppable Attitude, Sgt. Kisha Makerney Thrives, Despite Loss of Her Leg
A conversation with Army National Guardsman Sgt. Kisha Makerney is a motivating experience. In the face of seemingly detrimental odds, she has not only thrived, but accomplished more in a few years than many will in a lifetime.
As a Choctaw who grew up in Fort Towson, Oklahoma, Makerney excitedly began her military service with the Army National Guard at the age of 17 and subsequently embarked on her first tour at age 18, where she was stationed in Iraq.
