Cpl. Jasmine Perry hails from Central City, Kentucky. She graduated from Muhlenberg North High School in 2002 and earned an athletic scholarship to St. Catherine’s College as a three sport athlete in basketball, softball and soccer.

In October of 2004, Perry enlisted in the Army. In May of 2005, after only a few months at her first duty station in Fort Carson, Colorado, she was injured in a training exercise causing damage to her left leg. After a year of limb salvage, Perry’s left leg could not be saved and was amputated below the knee in June of 2006.

In 2010, Perry was sent to the Center for the Intrepid and it was there where she became active in adaptive sports. She was also the first soldier to complete the motorcycle safety course using adaptive equipment. She devotes her spare time to countless volunteer organizations. Perry volunteers at her local community center, Habitat for Humanity, her local homeless shelter and is an avid hunter.
