Edward Sanchez is a 35-year old rancher from Silver City, New Mexico. Having worked as a truck driver in the past, Sanchez was excited when he heard about the opportunity to drive for KBR in Iraq. He went to Iraq intending to help with rebuilding efforts and save for his future.
Sanchez was among the KBR drivers sent down a “red road” by the company into what is now known as the Good Friday Massacre. Sanchez was shot twice during the attack by insurgents, but managed to help an injured man and survive his own wounds. Memories of the attack are carved in his mind; the permanent limp the massacre left him with means the day is always with him.
