United States Marines
Dennis Derr of League City, Texas, served honorably as an Infantryman in the Marines for seven years, but was medically retired due to injuries he received in combat. In addition to being awarded the Purple Heart, he received the Bronze Star medal with Combat "V". Dennis works full time, but finds time to help other wounded warriors. He volunteers with Houston-area organizations such as Impact a Hero and Combat Marine Outdoors, which takes wounded vets from their San Antonio hospital on fishing and hunting trips.
