SGT MARCUS KUBOY
Mission Accomplished on Aug. 16, 2008
In March 2007, Army Sergeant Marcus Kuboy was on his first deployment with the Minnesota National Guard as a combat medic with the 2-136th Infantry, 34th Infantry Division in Al Anbar Province, Iraq when he was injured in an improvised explosive device (IED) blast. He sustained severe injuries to both of his legs, traumatic brain injury (TBI), nerve damage, and a fractured back, jaw and arm.
After several months at Walter Reed Medical Center, he was transported to a VA Rehabilitation center in St. Paul, Minnesota for additional rehabilitation therapy.
A specially adapted custom HFOT home has allowed Marcus to be more independent and focus on his future. He has earned his bachelor’s degree in social work and a master’s degree in clinical social work with a focus on Veterans and their families. He works as a mental health therapist and is dedicated to supporting organizations focused on suicide prevention. In his free time, he enjoys golfing and building model kits.
