WATCH: Glenn talks to retired Army Captain Sam Brown about his heroic service and run for for Texas rep

On tonight’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn sat down with a true American hero, retired Army Captain Sam Brown, who suffered burns to over 30% of his body after his Humvee was struck by an IED during a mission in Kandahar, Afghanistan in September 2008. It has been a trying 5 years, but Sam is now married with two beautiful children and running for representative in Texas District 102.

While Sam is running for a state government position, Glenn felt it was important for the national audience to meet this remarkable man. “As goes Texas, so goes the Republic,” Glenn said. So Sam and his wife Amy joined Glenn at his home to discuss the tragedy that brought them together and how they have maintained such incredible perspective despite what they have faced.

In the clip below, Sam shares his experience in Afghanistan and how Amy came into his life:

Glenn then asked Sam to discuss his political ambitions. Sam has already served his country honorably, and he was awarded the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Army Accommodation Medal with “Valor” Device, Global War on Terrorism Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Ribbon, Air Assault Badge, Airborne Badge, and Ranger Tab for his sacrifice. He decided to run for office because he recognizes the unsustainable trajectory this country is on, and he wants to his part to right the path.

“I made a pledge to my God, my country, and my wife,” Sam said. And he explained that he is not interested in back room deals and playing politics in order to get his way – he is interested in standing up for his principles and the principles of his constituents.

    What an exceptional young woman who is able to look past the surface to ones soul. This is what the old saying of ” never judge a book by its’ cover” looks tenfold. Kudos to Glenn Beck for giving us stories such as these. And to truly look at ourselves…What have we done that has made a difference?
    God Bless you Capt. Sam Brown and your lovely wife Amy. Good luck on your candidacy for District 102 in Texas. And pray that you win the upcoming election in November 2014.

    Since we are each unique, liberty’s principles also serve as a foundation for the rules of law intended to prevent unequal treatment and plunder by agents of the state in the name of fairness, equality, or other illusions.

    Since California is down the toilet, I am sending my money to this wonderful man. I don’t live in Texas, but I do have relatives that do live in Austin. (Is Austin still in Texas?) Better to support a true conservative, than a RINO — so thanks Glenn for spotlighting this man. Who knows where it will lead. God bless him and God be with him guiding him in his quest to be elected.

    This courageous couple truly epitomize everything that is exceptional & miraculous about our (formerly great) nation–with people such as these representing us in govt, America could successfully recapture the trajectory that will ensure our survival.

    They didn’t just do it to Colorado. They’ve done it to Virginia too.

    Glenn. Excellent interview. What a hero. I wonder if the vile progressive Democrats will make fun of him, showing their true colors of dissing what’s good about America.

    But fix your title. It reads,
