About Will Castillo:
Will was born in Columbia, South America, but grew up in Queens, New York since he was three. Until the 911 attacks happened, it inspired him to join the U.S. Army. On April 27, 2007, on patrol with his team in Fallujah, Iraq, their truck was hit by an IED leaving him the only survivor.
He struggled with the guilt of being the only one to have survived the incident. Will spent two years recovering at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. After a few years passed, he decided to go to Walter Reed to get surgery with someone he knew. He encouraged Will to try bobsledding.
Will knew he found his sport when he tried Para Bobsled. Since then, he has won numerous awards and has been dedicating his blessing to wounded soldiers and his military team’s honor.
