SGT Rex Tharp

North Manchester, IN


Following in the footsteps of his grandfather and brother, Rex Tharp enlisted in the Army as an Infantryman right after high school.  On January 10, 2012, during his first combat deployment, Sergeant Tharp was serving with the 2-87th Infantry, 10th Mountain division in Kandahar, Afghanistan, when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated. He lost his right leg above the knee, damaged his left leg, and sustained several other injuries in the blast.   

Rex is choosing to build his home in Indiana where he grew up.
