LAGUNA VISTA, Texas — Pvt. Rey D. Cuervo always knew he wanted to be a soldier and he warned his family of the risks he faced as he went off to war in Iraq, his mother remembered.
Cuervo, 24, of Laguna Vista, was killed Sunday in Baghdad when an improvised explosive device hit his mounted patrol. He was assigned to 1st Squadron, 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment, based in Fort Polk, La.
“He was five years old and he said, ‘You know I’m going to be a soldier,’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll believe you when you leave, when I see you in a uniform. Well, he did it,”’ Rosalba Kuhn said, recalling a conversation with her only son.
