Noah Galloway was offered other Reality TV roles, but, he says “Dancing With The Stars” is the perfect fit since he wanted to stay near his kids. He and Sharna Burgess plan to rehearse for the show in Burmingham, Alabama. He’s got such a touching and inspiring platform like Amy Purdy. Below is more from Fox411…
Then, “DWTS” came calling and Galloway said it was a perfect fit instead of other reality shows he was offered, such as “Survivor.”
Galloway couldn’t bear going to a remote location, cut off from his kids.
But “DWTS” has arranged for Galloway and his partner, Sharna Burgess, to rehearse in his Birmingham, Alabama hometown, where he plans to get a new state-of-the-art prosthetic arm suitable for dancing.
Meanwhile, dance pro Burgess said, “Yes, he’s a double amputee and yes, there are going to be things he can’t do, but what he has is an incredible drive and dedication.”
Galloway, an “American Sniper” fan who doesn’t like to talk about the film “because it’s become so political” still likes to share his favorite part of the film, when Chris Kyle visits a therapist who urged him to help fellow veterans.
“I’ve worked closely with other veterans who have been injured after me and that was a healing part for me to work with them,” Galloway said.
Galloway said vets reached out to him after his Men’s Health cover, “thanking me for being a positive image of veterans. I didn’t see that coming. It touched me. The military is my family.
“I’m hoping I make them proud on this show.”
I just love this couple!! Not only will he make Vets proud, but, America too. Be sure to read the full story at Fox411. Also, if you’d like to know even more on Noah, see this piece at Garage Games (thanks to Sam for sending!).
