Sgt Jose Antonio Rivera
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 5, 1969
Puerto Rico, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 2003, Iraq

Army Sgt. 1st Class Rivera was assigned to Delta Company, 3rd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Rivera was part of a patrol in Mahmudiyah (15 Miles south of Baghdad) when his unit came under rocket propelled grenade and small arms fire. Jose was born in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico, where he lived until he was 19. He joined the Army in 1990, and had worked as a recruiter in New York City where he had a serious work ethic. Even while on vacation, he would try to sign up new soldiers. He would also always insist that his stepson finish his schoolwork before the two of them played basketball. To his stepson he wasn't a step-dad, he considered him his dad; he learned more from Jose than anybody else. Jose was a hardworking person and a family provider. He is survived by his wife, Sonia, a daughter and a son.
