With an adventurous spirit and a zest for life, SSG Rivera joined the Connecticut Army National Guard in 2002, initially as a chemical weapons specialist eventually transferring and becoming a combat infantryman. SSG Rivera was proudly serving with Apache Company, 1st Battalion, 102nd Infantry Regiment (Mountain) located in Norwalk, during his second deployment to Afghanistan. SSG Rivera’s professional achievements include graduating from the U.S. Army’s Airborne and Mountain Warfare schools along with the Warrior Leader’s Course.
