Sgt. Jorge E. Arrizon, from Chisago, Minnesota, enlisted in the Army Reserve in July 2005 to serve his country. When asked why he chose to serve in the military, Sgt. Arrizon proudly claims that since he was a child, that has been his desire.
He is assigned to 353rd Transportation Company in Buffalo, Minnesota. From July 2008-July 2009 he deployed to Iraq as an 88M (Truck Driver). The comraderie and overall experience of deployment is his most honored and memorable experience.
