Richard Dayoub from Thunderbird Management welcomes Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Specialist, Alexis Pantoja to this edition of El Paso Prime Time to talk about a major life-changing event, how he handled it, and what he has been up to in recent days. Alexis sits down to narrate how he went from an injury that put him in a 10-day coma to relearning basics such as talking and walking, to nowadays being selected to participate in the Warrior Games happening this Summer.

The Department of Defense Warrior Games will be held by the U.S Army Training & Doctrine from June 21-30, 2024, where they bring hundreds of wounded, ill, and injured active duty and veteran military members to compete in adaptive sports as part of their recovery journeys.
