Army Staff Sergeant Marcos Jimenez was in the military for nearly twenty years. In March of 2011, he was seriously injured by an improvised explosive device in Logar Province, Afghanistan. His right leg sustained serious injuries in the blast and SSG Jimenez didn’t fully regain consciousness until weeks later. “I know, I might not be able to do things the way I used to,” says SSG Jimenez, “but I can do things. In a different way, but I can still do them.” Among the commendations awarded to SSG Marcos Jimenez were the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star, and the Afghanistan Operation Enduring Freedom Medal.
