Mason Rudder has already endured 10 surgeries for a rare genetic disorder that affects his range of motion, but that hasn't stopped him from dreaming of becoming an elite Navy SEAL one day.
Navy SEAL Jared Ogden spent a day training Mason. They went through demolition and sniper training, and during their lunch break, Mason led the SEALs on a mission that included detonating a real bomb and clearing three rooms in search of the Taliban leader.
