Army Sergeant Kody Wilson joined the military out of Kansas City, Missouri in 2005 because he was inspired by his grandfather, who is a Korean War veteran.
Sergeant Wilson and his platoon were assigned to route clearance missions in Iraq accompanied by Navy explosives ordinance disposal technicians. During one mission on May 18, 2008, Sergeant Wilson’s platoon heard a huge explosion. A team of engineers had hit an IED, suffering many serious injuries.
Army Specialist Carroll Moulden joined the military in 2005 out of Annapolis, Maryland because he wanted to do something meaningful with his life and wanted to support his family. He said his experience in the Army made him a better man for his family, and his service overseas made him appreciate his own life even more.
Specialist Moulden was injured in 2007 when his team encountered an explosively formed penetrator (EFP), which caused at least one casualty. Shortly after that, he experienced internal bleeding and had to be flown back to camp for testing.
Marine Corps Sergeant Brian Lowe joined the military in May of 2008 out of West Palm Beach, Florida because he wanted to serve his country and protect the freedom of all Americans.
After returning from a tour in Afghanistan, Sergeant Lowe began experiencing a lot of pain and other symptoms. Shortly after, he was diagnosed with cancer, which was intensified by exposure during his tour.
