This is Infantry Sergeant Daryl Williams of the United States Army.
Here, he's taking the oath of enlistment from his hospital bed at the 86th Combat Support Hospital in Baghdad, Iraq, July 9, 2008. This man refuses to allow his combat wounds to deter him from continuing to serve our nation. Notice the tattoo - a Combat Infantryman's Badge (CIB). He's been there before and he'll be back there again.
Sergeant Williams is assigned to the Scout / Sniper Platoon, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Combined Arms Battalion, 68th Armor Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, Multi-National Division – Baghdad.
Thank you, Sgt. Williams.U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Zachary Mott.
