Amy Dimond, the moving story of Private First Class Diego Rincon, an immigrant soldier in the United States Army who was killed in the first suicide bomber attack during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Diego was inspired to fight for his adopted homeland following the brutal attacks of September 11. His anger and sadness following this tragic event were shared by millions around the world. Yet it was his resolve to fight against the lethal threats of terrorism that ultimately compelled him to Iraq with the “Rock of the Marne.” He served with the famed Third Infantry Division of Ft. Stewart, Georgia in a tip of the spear role in combat. Diego was awarded posthumous citizenship in a gesture that inspired national law. He was also posthumously awarded the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star, the War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, the War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Presidential Unit Citation Medal, and the National Defense Medal for Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Amy acclaimed by notable figures such as General Tommy Franks, Senator Zell Miller and Gerald Molen (producer of Schindler’s List), among others, and her live presentation is equally powerful, inspiring courage and patriotism among any audience. As she says, “It’s not just that Diego and his fellow soldiers fought. The heart and soul of the story lies in what they fought for and why.”
