Jose Juan Perez Velazquez Testimonials

In April 2003-2004 I was deployed to Iraq to support OIF and returned again 2005-2006. I had been blown up by IEDs, been shot at, mortared I felt like I was invincible until the enemy blew up my truck with a pressure plate IED at which I sustained head trauma, I have TBI, PTSD and am deaf in my left ear.
After being humbled by my exposure to death I have a whole new outlook to life. Make sure to let your family and friends know that you love them even though we may be a handful thanks to PTSD. The physical war maybe over for us from Iraq or Afghanistan, but the mental one inside us is a long difficult road to face. Thank goodness we do not have to do it alone. With the 9-11 Foundation to bring us together we can support each other.
