Canadian Sniper Jody Mitic wearing a Survival Bracelet made by Maple Leaf Survival on CTV News

We made a paracord Survival bracelet for Jody Mitic which we gave him at his recent book signing in Calgary, Alberta. We were honoured to see him wearing it the next day on CTV News.



Thank You for your service Jody. We are humbled.

A 20 year Canadian Armed Forces veteran and Sniper Team Leader, Jody Mitic lost both his legs when he stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan on his third tour of duty overseas. After only a few short months of rehabilitation, Jody was up and walking again. A year after his injury, Jody made national media headlines here at home when he completed the Achilles 5km run on two prosthetic legs, following that, he completed the Canada Army Run half marathon. Not only was Jody’s accomplishment a personal milestone on his road to recovery but it also became a major event that helped inspire change in how the military views and handles injured veterans and their ability to be of service.

In 2013, Jody continued to push himself harder, competing in the Amazing Race Canada’s first season with his younger brother, Cory. Jody and his brother finished in second place, and people from across the country took the time to tell him he had become a model of perseverance, strength and hope for Canadians.
