Patrick Carney, Staff Sergeant United States Army
Patrick Carney, Staff Sergeant United States Army. He had 8 years of service, and 2 tours of duty in Iraq 2008-2009 with 25th Infantry Division/1st Battalion 24 Infantry Regiment and in 2011 with 1st Cavalry Division/ 1 Battalion 8th Cavalry Regiment. SSG Carney served as a Infantryman and unlike most Infantrymen who as they get promoted switch from office (service) jobs, He spent the entire 8 years in a "line" platoon. Line meaning anywhere but the inside of an office, in civilian terms. Over the course of his service Pat sustained different injuries throughout his body, the left shoulder however was the injury that ultimately separated him from the Army. It was not until after Pat left the service that it was discovered he had a traumatic brain injury, and needed many of his joints replaced. SSG Carney loved the Army, and still does. He is quoted as saying "If I could do it again, I would have seen doctors instead of being "Hooah" and pushing through the pain, but hind sight is 20-20"
Sgt. William Essary
Sgt William Essary joined the Army on 29 April 2001 right before 9/11. He trained at Ft. Benning, Ft. Polk, Ft. Sill and was stationed at Fort Bragg, NC in Bravo Battery 3rd of the 319 Airborne Field Artillery Regiment. In 2002-03’ Sgt Essary was deployed to Asadabad Afghanistan as a 120 mm mortar man. Soon after returning home he was injured in the line of duty. On 18 May 2004, Bill was called back to the unit from a post clean up detail with his soldiers as he was to practice carrying the National Colors for the 82nd Airborne Change of Command Ceremony. They pulled over the vehicle and he was crossing the road out by the ranges to retrieve a set of keys which had fallen out of the Humvee. Bill came out from behind the Humvee and was hit by a Ford F250 pickup being driven by a fellow soldier doing 70 mph and partially in our lane. The eventual result was the amputation of his left leg, a broken back, both bones shattered in both arms, and memory loss. After 2 years of recovery, on 28 July 2006, Sgt Eassary retired from active duty at E5 and returned home to his family in Pennsylvania.
