On our way to interview Gaytri Kachroo, the whistle blower lawyer for the Madoff scandal, we stopped at an Occupy Boston event. There we found the powerful story of Carlos Arredondo, an immigrant from Costa Rica. He lost his son to a snipers bullet in Iraq. He subsequently persuaded the US government to make things better for Vets and their families. Here is his incredible story.
Update 04/16/2013 - This story keeps getting better. Today an article in NBC News is calling Carlos a hero. During the Boston Marathon tragedy he was photographed with a triage patient in a wheelchair. His hand is squeezing the mans bleeding artery as they run for help. The only thoughts I have are, “of course, what else would a guy like this do?”
