Before Specialist Osvaldo Hernandez was a decorated soldier in the U.S. Army, he was caught with a weapon he had no business carrying.
In 2002, when he was 20 years old, Hernandez was stopped by police who found a semi-automatic handgun under the seat of his car. Hernandez said he had the gun for his personal safety.
"I came from a fairly rough environment and honestly at that time I just felt it would be good to have some kind of protection," said Hernandez.
