He was assigned to the 81st Troop Command, Indiana National Guard, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Saint Bernadette of Lourdes,
Beloved Sister, pray for
Friends describe him as an all around great guy who got along with everyone. Many of his friends considered him as more of a brother than just a friend.

His family is devastated by his loss. 

Sergio is survived by many loving friends and relatives.

Pray for the 21 year olds who die in combat. Yesterday, they were just boys.

Let us pray that Sergio Perez Jr. is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
