Join Us Tomorrow as We Honor Our Friend, Rico Borjas

Join us tomorrow for a WOD created in honor of our friend, Frederico Borjas.  He dedicated his life to serving others – first as a Marine, then a San Diego SWAT officer and lastly as an Army Reservist.


Rico was killed on October 16, 2008 in Afghanistan when he was working the checkpoint post when a Local Border Patrol uniformed officer came up the the post. They have been working together as a security force.  His unit was stopped by a man disguised as an Afghanistan border patrol agent.   The imposter opened fire on the soilders, killing Rico.

He is survived by his 13 year old daughter, Yvette, his parents, brother Raimundo, sisters Ofelia and Anita and a large extended family.  For more pictures and information on Rico, please visit http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=30638351
