District recognizes National Disability Employment Awareness Month
Carlos Gomez takes time out from his work out routine. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District recognized Gomez, an administrative assistant who works in the Programs and Project Management Division, during this month’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month observance. Although Gomez sustained life-changing injuries resulting in his disability, he continues to exceed his personal expectations and physical limitations. “I drive still, I cross country ski, I’m certified as an advanced underwater scuba diver. Rock climbing, mountain biking, zip lining; you name it, I will do it,” Gomez said. “There is nothing I can’t do and I will continue to push harder with a prosthetic leg.”
