THE STORY:

I am the proud sister of Cpl. Jose A. Velez KIA in Fallujah, Iraq Nov 2004 and Spc. Andrew Velez died by suicide Sharona, Afghanistan July 2006. We are the Legacy of Roy Velez Jr. 

I will be running with Team TAPS as not only a survivor but to honor all of our Heroes.

TAPS has helped me through my grief journey with mentor support, grief seminars, and countless hours of love and support from so many at TAPS.
