This Memorial Day Weekend we celebrate a Triple Amputee Veteran that lives life to the fullest!

He's a third generation military man whose passion for his country led him to serve in the Marines. While serving in Afghanistan in 2010, Marine Corporal Juan Dominquez lost both of his legs and his right arm in an explosion.

Love and music were the forces behind Juan's recovery. He married the love of his life and high school sweetheart Alexis and went on to pursue a career in something he loves to do... playing music! Juan's passion led him to dedicate his life to music and now this triple amputee war veteran continues to play the drums, guitar, piano, bass, and trumpet.

Juan has appeared on stage with Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, and Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins. He has also performed at events such as Fueled by the Fallen, which was held in his honor. Juan is now working on original music and pursuing his dreams.

When not playing his many instruments, he also loves to cook and spend as much time as possible enjoying life with his wife Alexis. And thanks to Juan we can all be inspired to follow our dreams and live our lives to the fullest.
