The story of a True American Hero, Major Ed Pulido
January 15, 2013
Hosted by Gary Ray
In a matter of seconds, under a broiling Iraqi noon sun on Aug. 17, 2004, Major Ed Pulido of Edmond, Okla., saw his life take a 180-degree turn. He was thrust into first battling for his own survival and then dealing with how to rebuild himself. Having completed three separate tours of duty in Iraq, Pulido was serving a one-year stint with the U.S. Army Reserve's 75th Division to train new members of the Iraqi army. As he was driving an SUV through what is known as "IED Alley," traveling at 50-60 miles per hour. After making it through the crowded streets of Baghdad, the SUV hit an IED (improvised explosive device), that exploded under him.
