HAVE THE HEART OF A LION

Major Ed Pulido

My name is Major Ed Pulido, U.S. Army (Ret.). I am the Sr. VP Co-Founding member of Folds of Honor and Co-Founder of Warriors for Freedom.  On August 17th, 2004, I was hit by an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) or road side bomb in Baquobah, Iraq that would change my life forever.  As I laid on the 128 degree heat, one thing was clear, as a member of the Armed Forces of the United States of America, we all understand that it is our patriotic duty to never leave a fallen comrade behind on the field of battle, so help us God.

It was at that moment in the heat of battle, that I would  remember what my father once told me. He told me that when you take the oath of office to defend the greatest nation in the world, it is about God, Country, Family and all of those that serve in the Armed Forces of the United States America to protect you, the American people.
