The first thing you need to know about Navy Lt. Brad Snyder is that he's a bit intense.
If you go to the U.S. Naval Academy, swim competitively, and make the cut for the Navy's elite bomb-disposal squad, you're probably going to be the competitive type.
"Crossfit, surfing, biking, running, swimming, you name it I'm into it. Rock climbing," says Snyder.
The second thing you should know is that Snyder plans to continue doing all these things — even though he's now blind.
