SFC Rudy Velasquez Jr.

New Braunfels, TX


On June 9, 2012, Army Sergeant First Class Rudy Velasquez was serving as a Section Chief with Alpha Battery, 2-77 Field Artillery, 4th Brigade, 4th Infantry Division when an artillery blast knocked him unconscious during an enemy attack. Rudy finished his tour, but the effects of the severe concussions he suffered continued to progress. He was later medically retired due to these combat-related injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and significant vision loss.

Rudy is choosing to remain in Texas to be near his family.
