Nick Schoon grew up in Highland, Indiana with "the best family and friends you could ever have." Some of his fondest memories are of the great times he spent in the outdoors with them. He enlisted in the US Army as a 19Delta Cavalry Scout in 2003. He knew what he was getting into and the type of job he would perform. His duty station was at Fort Hood, Texas, where he served with the 4th ID (both 2nd and 4th Brigades) and the 1st Squadron 10th US Cavalry "Buffalo Soldiers."
Nick left the service in 2007 and has been fortunate to live in Buda, Texas with his beautiful wife. About his experiences with Wounded Warriors in Action, Nick said: "People refer to us as wounded warriors for what we did. I feel so much respect and admiration hearing this. When I am with my battle buddy John in the Great Outdoors it's like living my fallen comrades' dream."
