El Paso, TX
On his second combat deployment from 2008 to 2009, Army Staff Sergeant Pascual Delgado served as a Power Generation Equipment Repairer in Iraq with the 2nd Battalion, 4th Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division. Within a year of completing his deployment, Pascual experienced vision loss and neurological issues. In 2014, after numerous exams and tests, he was diagnosed with Service-Connected Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a condition attributed to frequent exposure to burn pits during his service in Iraq.
Pascual is choosing to remain in Texas, where he grew up.
