On Barefoot And Sick Of It! this Sunday May 6th @ 7pm EST Barefoot Patriot and his co-host Mike "On The Case" Casey welcome SGT. Felix Quintana of changeitback2012.com Former Marine Sgt. Felix Quintana was born in Honduras while his parents were missionaries in Central America. He was raised in Venezuela until the age of 13 when he and his family immigrated to the United States months after a failed coup d'etat by then army Lieutenant Colonel Hugo Chavez, who now presides over Venezuela. He joined the Marine Corps in 1999 at the age of 20 and was later mobilized for Operation Iraqi Freedom. He served with 1 Battalion 5 Marines during the invasion of Iraq as an Amphibious Assault Crewman/Driver aboard an AAV Track carrying 21 Marines. On April 10 2003 when on a mission to take over Saddam Hussein's Al-Azumayah Palace on the Tigris river, the regiment was ambushed in a firefight that would last up to 8 hours. Sgt. Quintana's AAV was first to be hit in the convoy with an RPG, causing shrapnel to be deployed and wounding Sgt. Quintana. In all, over 60 marines belonging to the 5th Marine regiment where wounded and one was killed in action during the fight for the palace. Sgt. Quintana was awarded the Purple Heart in recognition of wounds received in combat theater under enemy fire while in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He's the founder of Changeitback2012.com and Vets 4 Votes, where he continues to serve our great nation through two initiatives that seek to promote and protect our freedoms here at home as he and other service members did when fighting overseas; and to keep the United States from becoming like the country he once left.
