El Paso County Commissioner Sergio Lewis’ Son Injured In Attack In Afghanistan

El Paso County Commissioner Sergio Lewis’ son is home recovering from wounds he received in Afghanistan.  Thank God he is safely home.

There is nothing more frightening for a parent than a child serving in war.  Your phone is glued to your hand, you may move through your day as though everything is fine, but it never is.  You never stop asking God to keep your child, and everyone else’s child who is serving, safe until they can come home.

Corporal Joshua Lewis, the son of Sergio and Irene Lewis,  had five days left in the Wardak province in Afghanistan when a man dressed in an Afghan Army uniform opened fire on a group of soldiers from Fort Bliss.  Cpl. Lewis was hit in the lower leg in the attack.  He is credited by another soldier for saving his life because as they were being fired upon, the wounded Cpl. Lewis got to the other wounded soldier and put a tourniquet on his arm that was bleeding heavily from a bullet wound.

Cpl. Lewis is back in El Paso and recovering at William Beaumont Army Medical Center with his family by his side.  He was awarded the Purple Heart on the Fourth of July – a fitting tribute for a true American Hero.

Our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery go out to Corporal Joshua Lewis.  And to his parents, Sergio and Irene – we stand in awe of your son, and of your ability to go on with your lives during his service.  You are wonderful examples for all of us!
