Corporal Carlos Andrés Montoya- Hurtado always dreamt to be in the military. I used to meet them when they were in healthcare operations; they helped peasants in several tasks such as building highways, and, sometimes, even constructing houses for farmers. When I saw them performing these tasks, I used to consider them as real heroes ". Some years later, those children games became true and soon after finishing high school, Montoya enrolled in the Professional Soldier School, and then he took to extraordinary NCO course because of his outstanding performance.
When he thought one of his main goals had been reached, on the Holy Thursday in 2010, his entire life changed. After a harrying to his Company by FARC terrorists, a mortar grenade fell on his feet, I felt the bombing, got stumbled and then, everything was dark and I felt blood on my face By that time, your entire life passes as if it were a movie, you remember even people from your farthest past, he says.
After receiving first aid on site, and being transferred to the hospital, Corporal Montoya had to begin a new life. He started from zero and tried to rebuild all he almost lost in just a second. He learned to read and write Braille system, he learned to walk alone and handle his new lifestyle.
Now, sometime later, this Colombian hero delivers instruction to privates about rifle assembly and disassembly, military uniforms, and gives speeches in the Instruction and Training Battalion, Fourth Army Brigade. Every week, he visits sick soldiers and victims of IED. I want to be an example to follow; there is motivation to keep going and struggling for our country. Even if I lost sight, there is enough reason to have Fe en la Causa because as he has said Life continues and we have to live it
