A Warrior Story: Junior Rodriguez on Warrior Foundation Freedom Station


"The bond between a Marine and Corpsman is a bond like no other. It's tremendously personal--they're willing to take a bullet for you. It's a job that I never took lightly."

--retired Navy corpsman, Junior Rodriguez.

This week, we’re once again asking you to join us to help Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, a fantastic organization that aims to send ill and injured service members home for Christmas.

Our rather ambitious goal this year (given the pandemic) is to raise $500,000 by 10am Pacific on Friday, November 20.  In spite of the challenges brought-on by the pandemic, we’re confident that with your help--we can do it!  

The A&G Show has been involved with WFFS for a number of years, and we know that this fundraiser is not only a great idea--but it's something we owe to our troops. We owe all those who have given so much for our country. 

We owe you back.

As part of the effort, we’ll be talking to some of the warriors who have been helped by Warrior Foundation Freedom Station. After all--they can explain what happens there better than we can.

One of those warriors is Junior Rodriguez, a retired corpsman from the U.S. Navy. Junior is an injured warrior who’s been assisted by Warrior Foundation Freedom Station--and is now assisting others--which is too cool for words!

Listen to the Armstrong & Getty Select Cuts Podcast to learn about Junior's life and his Warrior Foundation Freedom Station experience.
