Homes for Our Troops - Army COL Daniel Dudek


Video from Homes for Our Troops


"Joining the military for the challenge, Daniel Dudek enlisted in the Army as a parachute rigger in the Army Reserve while attending college. Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a field artillery officer. He loved the discipline, the camaraderie, learning new skills, and traveling across the world. In early 2007, then Major Dudek deployed to Iraq as the brigade fire support officer for the 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division. While operating north of Hussainiyah, Iraq on July 19, 2007, his Stryker was struck by an explosively formed penetrator (EFP), wounding him and killing the Soldier next to him. Several pieces of fragmentation from the blast hit Danny in his lower back and hips. A medevac flight got him to surgery within an hour, which Danny credits to regaining some of his mobility. As a result, Danny has an incomplete spinal cord injury known as cauda equine syndrome. Read more here: https://www.hfotusa.org/dudek/' from video introduction
