USA Today has more on Crenshaw’s background:
Originally from Houston, Crenshaw lived in Ecuador and Colombia as a youth, while his father worked in the Texas oil and gas industry. He is fluent in Spanish. He later became a Navy SEAL and served several deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
In 2012, Crenshaw was on a mission in Afghanistan’s Helmand province when a homemade land mine went off directly in front of him, killing his interpreter and destroying his right eye and nearly blinding him altogether. He medically retired from the military in 2016, after 10 years serving on SEAL teams and earning two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.
He is going to be great!
