Wounded Warrior Carlos De LeonWounded Warrior ProjectWounded Warrior Carlos De Leon

September 2013 - Ret. Sgt. Carlos De Leon was trained as an Army mechanic, and he served in many places, including a fateful deployment to Baghdad in 2007. His life would change on August 11 of that year while he was walking across his base to give his father a birthday phone call. That's when the mortars started raining down on the base. Injured seriously by shrapnel, Carlos was taken first to the base hospital, then on to Kuwait, and Landstuhl, Germany before finally returning to the United States.

"My rehab and recovery have been very difficult, both physically and mentally," said Carlos. Treatments include frequent injections in the back of his head to deal with nearly constant headaches from his traumatic brain injury. "My rehab and recovery have been very difficult, both physically and mentally," said Carlos. Treatments include frequent injections in the back of his head to deal with nearly constant headaches from his traumatic brain injury. But Carlos has found ample support from both his family and Wounded Warrior Project« (WWP).

"My family is the most important thing to me," he said. His wife Jellitza is pursuing a degree in nursing. His teenage son Isaiah is already making plans for college. And his young daughter Nyjah sings, dances, and plays soccer. "They make me very happy," said Carlos.
