Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) student U.S. Army Maj. Dennis “DJ” Skelton, of Elk Point, South Dakota, has been given a rather unfortunate moniker, one he likely would prefer not to have. In 2011, following devastating injuries suffered in combat and a fervent drive to rehabilitate and return to his Soldiers on the front lines years later, he was coined the “Most Wounded Commander in U.S. Military History.”
Prior to returning to command the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment in Afghanistan, then U.S. Army Capt. DJ Skelton, left, is pictured with his first sergeant, Sgt. 1st Class James O. Bishop while in command of Company E, 229th Military Intelligence Battalion.
