Tonight we are honored to welcome Omar Milan. Omar was first in the United States Marine Corps, became a Field Radio Operator assigned to India Battery 3rd BN 10th Marines at Camp Lejeune. During his enlistment, he served one combat tour to Iraq for the invasion in 2003. He was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 2004, but reenlisted in the Air Force in 2006. While in the Air Force he became an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician. In May 2008, he transitioned back to the Marine Corps as an EOD Technician assigned to 2nd EOD Company, Camp Lejeune.
During his second deployment to Afghanistan he was injured while he was conducting a post blast analysis. During the analysis of the scene he discovered a secondary IED. As he proceeded to dispose of this IED, during its disposal, he stepped on a third IED at the scene. The third IED then pushed Omar onto a fourth IED. Omar sustained a below the knee amputation on his right leg, soft tissue and nerve damage to his left leg, damage to left hand with loss of index finger, and damage to right arm with loss of the elbow and nerve damage. In addition, he suffered a concussion with the loss of consciousness, a pelvic fracture, and a fracture to the left clavicle.
With his wife and daughters by his side, Omar spent 2 years at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD undergoing countless surgeries and rehabilitation. In January 2014 Milan retired from the Marine Corps and moved back to Texas. And we sure are glad he is still here with us!!!
Omar is also the 2015 Spirit of a Hero Recipient and now also an honorary board member for SOAH! You can find out more about one of my favorite organizations at www.spiritofahero.org/ and right here on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SpiritofaHero/ .
