Ens. Jordan Lo, of Phoenix, Airzona, recalls the accident that led to his call sign “Phoenix.” After successfully completing Officer Candidate School and being commissioned as a naval officer, Lo reported to flight school in Pensacola, Florida, to begin his training. Just two short months later, it was all over. On April 30, 2017, Lo and eight other student aviators were walking to a restaurant in Perdido Key, Florida, when a car swerved off the road and hit the group. For Lo, everything went black. He has no memory of what happened. His road to recovery was long and difficult, but ultimately resulted in the Phoenix rising to flight status again. (DoD video by Austin Rooney/Released)
