“The person who had the biggest influence in my life was my father,” said Walter Moss, a new Freedom Alliance scholarship recipient. “I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it weren’t for him.”
Walter just started his freshman year at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida where he is studying music production. Prior to college he attended the Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, Texas.
Walters’s father, Technical Sergeant Walter Moss Jr. was killed in Iraq in March of 2006. Just three months into his deployment, while trying to defuse a roadside IED, an unexpected second device exploded killing him instantly.
“After losing him, I was filled with something I never had or understood before. I wanted to live my life in a way that would honor him, in a way that he would be proud,” said Walter.
Walter was an honor role student and a squad leader at his college preparatory military high school before he started college. Walter also has an intense passion for music and plays the guitar.
“Everyday of my life he influences me in some way, big or small, and will continue to do so until the day I die.”
By providing a scholarship to his son, Freedom Alliance is pleased to honor Technical Sergeant Walter Moss Jr. and all like him who have died or been injured in service to our country.
