My Story

Welcome to our site! We created this site to keep our friends and families updated on Corey. He was injured in Iraq in 2005 and is receiving rehabiliation at this time. Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.

Corey is a member if the C-Btry 1/147 FA in Yankton, SD. He was deployed to Iraq In October after serving about 5 months in the states. While in Iraq Corey got promoted to Sgt. On Dec. 4, 2005 Corey's convoy was hit by two roadside bombs. Corey recieved shrapnel to the head causing a TBI. Corey is receiving rehabiliation to overcome his injury. When Corey was at home he was an EMT for Yankton County. He loves his ambulance! Corey also worked at Shur-Co and attended paramedic school. Corey is a wonderful husband and father. He takes pride in everything he does. He is a strong person and he'll fight through this
