Andrew always liked being in the center of the action. So when 9/11 came he remembered thinking “there would be a high need for medics if there would be a war coming. And it would be a reason to finally join the military.”
In August 2006 Andrew deployed to Iraq. Andrew and his platoon were constantly busy with border security and combat patrols. During the deployment, 22 warriors from Andrew’s 5th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry were killed, 98 were injured and at one point two captains were killed in less than 24 hours.
“None of the warriors I treated died from their injuries,” says Andrew. “Knowing there are people alive today because of my help – or my luck – is an amazing feeling.”
And then in March 2007, Andrew became one of the wounded.
“I was shot multiple times in the lower left leg from about three feet with a 7.62 M240B machine gun. It was a freak accident from the Chinook crew chief’s weapon – so that literally added insult to injury.”
The four rounds shattered bone, ripped through arteries, and damaged soft tissue of Andrew’s leg.
Andrew spent more than a month at Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg, NC where he initially came into contact with WWP.
“They’ve helped me immensely – getting me out with other warriors who have been hurt. They’ve helped me with filing paperwork and offered resources for finding a job through the Warriors to Work™ program.
Andrew retired in November 2009 as one of the most decorated medics in the history of the 82nd Airborne, including the Silver Star, Bronze Star with valor, Army Commendation Medal with valor, and the Purple Heart.
Andrew finished paramedic school in 2012. He plans to continue on to medical school and is still thinking about a career in federal law enforcement.
