"Thru the Fire"
In 2005, U.S. Air Force Tech Sergeant Israel Del Torro's Humvee rolled over a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. 80 percent of his body was burned. Doctors said he'd never walk again or breathe on his own. Against all odds, Del Torro left the hospital within three months and again joined the Air Force - becoming the first ever 100 percent combat-disabled Air Force Technician.
The design reflects Del Toro's personal motto, "Through these flames I am stronger." It represents the strength, courage, and confidence he embodies every day.
