I Am Vanessa Guillen

You have all heard the story. Vanessa Guillen was a vibrant, beautiful 20-year-old soldier who vanished from the Fort Hood Texas Army base. With no real answers from the Army the family began a crusade to find out what happened to Vanessa. Tragically her remains were found on June 30 of last year, killed at the hands of a fellow soldier.

Hear her sister Mayra talk about all the family has been through to ensure Vanessa did not die in vain. Currently the family is working to pass legislation in her honor. Call your representatives and urge them to make her bill law.
