Romy Camargo: An Everyday Hero in the Special Forces Community

This story is from the Green Beret Foundation provides immediate and long term support to our wounded, their families, and to the families of our fallen. As the foundation states "The Army's Green Berets, America's Quiet Professionals, are a brotherhood of elite warriors who have been waging silent wars for decades. They carried the mantle of freedom into Afghanistan on September 12, 2001 and continue to fight there and in Iraq still today. The regiment has seen a lot of battle and the men and their families need our support."

The Green Beret Foundation highlights who they call "Everyday Heroes in the SF Community" and the following story underscores the never give up, always contribute mindset of the Special Forces professional.

CWO3 Romulo "Romy" Camargo always knew that he wanted to be in the military. He joined the US Army in 1995 and became a Green Beret special forces operator. While serving in Afghanistan, 25-30 enemy forces attacked him and his team with rocket propelled grenades and AK-47s. Camargo was hit. He was paralyzed but he and his family have persevered. Romy and his wife Gaby are opening the Stay in Step Recovery Center ( in Tampa to support other people with spinal cord injuries in their rehabilitation.

This video is part of the Green Beret Foundation's "Everyday Heroes in the Special Forces Community" video series about Green Berets and their family members. The videos share the story of these heroes' military service and their work in their communities as they come home from war.
