Yiannis Karakousis

Captain (Ret'd) - Royal Engineers

Yiannis was injured by a suicide bomber whilst providing 'over-watch' for a dismounted patrol in Afghanistan.

He was extremely luck to survive the blast, however suffered significant injuries including a mild brain injury, a fracture skull and 'blast lung'. After a period of initial recovery Yiannis joined the charity in 2014 and remained with us for a year, during which time he achieved his private pilot's license (helicopters) before moving on to pursue a new career elsewhere.
