Speaking on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, at 8:30 AM EST at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana
Marine Corporal Josh Bleill [Bly-ul; rhymes with “Kyle” or “smile”] is a native of Greenfield, Indiana. After graduating high school, Josh attended Purdue University. Upon completion of his education, Josh decided to serve his country by joining the United States Marine Corps in 2004 and was activated for a tour of duty in Iraq in 2006.
While serving in Iraq, Corporal Bleill was severely injured, resulting in the loss of both of his legs. After extensive rehabilitation, Bleill returned to Indiana in August of 2008, where he attacked his new life head-on. This new life included employment as the Indianapolis Colts Community Spokesperson. In 2017, Josh took a new step in his journey by starting his own speaking company, Josh Bleill LLC, to do public speaking independently. His powerful message of overcoming adversity and taking life one step at a time is inspiring audiences around the country. Josh is proudly sponsored by the mechanical and electrical company DEEM.
