Michael A. Carrasquillo
IT Project Manager

Joined Army (Active Duty) at 18 in January of 2003. Enlisted as Airborne Infantryman. After basic, was stationed with 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vicenza Italy. Deployed to Iraq in 2003, then deployed to Afghanistan in 2005. Was wounded in combat on August 9th 2005. Ended up in Walter Reed, where I underwent 40+ surgeries (actually died twice) over a 2 year span before I was finally medically retired as a Sgt. On September 20, 2007.

Since retiring, I’ve tried to stay active in Veterans circles, joining many non-profits that seek to help disabled veterans. I took an IT job with the Department of Veterans Affairs. I started and ran a disabled veterans support group just outside Baltimore and just started another in Frederick. I’ve tried very hard to not let my disability be something that holds me back in life. Just recently I began doing stand-up comedy. It’s been something I’ve always been fascinated by, but never thought I would get into myself. I use comedy as not only a way to spread awareness to veteran issues but as a form of therapy for myself.
