Retired U.S. Army 1st Lieutenant Cameron Kerr deployed with the 101st Airborne division to Afghanistan. In February 2011, with one month left in his deployment, Kerr stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), resulting in the loss of his left leg below the knee and earning him a Purple Heart. Just nine months after his injury, Kerr re-learned to snowboard, as an amputee, with Disabled Sports USA. It launched him into other adventures most people would only dare to undertake. In early January 2020, Cameron Kerr continued to redefine disability and disabled veterans with a trek to Antarctica by skiing the last 60 nautical miles to the South Pole, with the 2041 Foundation.
Before we chat with Cameron about his excursion, we sit down with Explorer & 2041 Foundation Founder Robert Swan, who was the first explorer to visit both poles, and led the excursion that Cameron joined.
