Wednesday’s Hero

Sgt. James P. Muldoon
Sgt. James P. Muldoon
23 years old from Bells, Texas

June 29, 2006
U.S. Army

Sgt. James Muldoon was born in Denver, Colorado but settled in Bells, Texas. He died on June 29, 2006 from injuries he suffered during a raid on a safe house in Baqubah, Iraq. For his actions that day, Sgt. Muldoon was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star with Valor.

James Muldoon loved the Broncos. “He played football and track when he was in high school, and he was a big football fan, a big Broncos fan,” said his widow. “He’s always liked them since he was little.” “He was a joker, constantly, and he was a fun guy, and loved his family.” Sgt. Muldoon left behind a wife and daughter, who turned 8 this year, and his parents.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
