Isaac Thomas Cortes

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Bronx, NY

Branch of Service: U.S. Army

Rank: Private Second Class

My son enlisted in the Army November of 2006, was sworn in January of 2007, and graduated from basic training in April of 2007. In September of 2007, he was deployed to Iraq and by November of 2007 was killed in action. A service of only 10 months in the military. He lived by the motto – “Go Big or Go Home”.

What can I say about my son, he had a heart of gold, was generous with his love, had an irrepressible spirit, and brought lightness to this world! My gentle giant, my Hero!

Isaac took fatherhood to a whole new level, the likes of which were absolutely amazing… Always above and beyond and then some.

Age: 26
