He was a medic with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, at Fort Hood, Texas. Accord­ing to reports, Aguirre had run out into the open, exposing himself to enemy fire, to save a wounded fellow Soldier, miost likely knowing that he would be the next person targeted in the ambush. In keeping with his dedication to his fellow Soldiers, Aguirre had volunteered for the mission because the unit involved did not have a medic that day. He was 21 years old.
