Now THIS Is Reality: Exclusive Interview With Iraq War Hero, Reality TV Star

Iraq War veteran Dave Bronson and his wife, Cara Bronson
Army veteran Dave Bronson never dreamed he’d become a reality TV star. But his story is easily as compelling, and certainly more heroic, than that of Honey Boo Boo or The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Ten years ago, while fighting in Iraq, Bronson lost his left leg and nearly lost his life when an improvised explosive device (IED) went off near his HUMVEE. A devoted husband and stay-at-home dad, Bronson co-founded Veterans Amputee Golf Association (VAGA), a charity that helps veterans with amputated limbs and those coping with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD).

But he has struggled with the physical issues that accompany losing a limb, and with the less visible but equally debilitating emotional symptoms of PTSD. Finding work has been difficult because of his condition. Cara works night shifts as a nurse.

But Dave and Cara’s fortunes recently changed in dramatic fashion. They’re the first couple to be featured in The Briefcase, an intense new CBS reality series that debuts on Wednesday (May 27). On the show, two families are given a briefcase with $101,000, and each family is asked to decide whether to keep the money or help another family who is struggling as badly or worse.

However, what the families don’t know is that the family with whom they are considering sharing this financial windfall have received an identical briefcase with the very same instructions. The choice gets more difficult over the course of 72 hours as the families are given more information about each other.
