U.S. Army First Lieutenant Omar Vazquez, 25, of Hamilton, New Jersey, assigned to the 2nd Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment, based in Fort Hood, Texas, died of wounds suffered April 22, 2011, when insurgents in Numaniyah, Iraq, attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. He is survived by his parents Maria and Pablo, sister Marisel, and brothers Pablo and Javier.
“He was such a great man and always wanted to fight for his country,” Vazquez’s sister, Marisel, told the Newark Star-Ledger.
“He was very proud to be in the Army. It was what he wanted ever since he played with G.I. Joe soldiers when he was 3 or 4 years old. But it was when the Sept. 11 attacks happened, he really committed to serving his country.”
