23 MAY 2017 VERDUGO
Today’s WoD is at the request of Jason Mouret.
If you haven’t met Jason, he came in on our VetWoD program that you guys funded. He is a Purple Heart recipient and has been blown up considerably more often that a human being should be blown up. When you see him, give him a fist bump, high-five, or hug today. He’s usually at BB in the early afternoon classes.
This WoD is in memory of one of his brothers-in-arms, Staff Sergeant Russel James Verdugo who was killed in action on May 23rd 2005 while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
His mission was to find and render safe IEDs threatening US personal in Baghdad. As part of 187th EOD Battalion Task Force Tiger.
While preparing to disarm an IED as secondary IED was detonated within feet of his team.
Verdugo was KIA, his actions saved the lives of 4 other soldiers who were wounded in the blast SSgt. Derick Miller, SFC Brian Marshall, LT. Darby Boudreaux and Sgt. Jason Mouret.
Today we honor our fallen with our effort, and our gratitude.
