CPL Roberto Cruz-Arocho

Wesley Chapel, FL


On Aug. 14, 2005, Army Corporal Roberto Cruz-Arocho, on his first combat deployment, was on tower guard duty with Alpha Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division when he was shot by a sniper in Tikrit, Iraq.  Roberto sustained an incomplete spinal cord injury with lower extremity weakness along with damage to his left hand and forearm from the gunshot. With physical therapy, he has since regained the ability to walk with the assistance of a cane.  

Originally from Puerto Rico, Roberto is choosing to build his home in Florida where he currently lives.
