On February 8, 2014, Aaron was on patrol when he stepped on an IED. He has had two amputations and will have to undergo multiple surgeries. Although undergoing one of the amputations and multiple procedures, Aaron remained calm and was more concerned with making the other Marines nearby laugh.
Aaron left for his deployment a week after his loving wife gave birth to their beautiful and smiley daughter, Riley. The Alonsos have been through a great deal and this fund is meant to help relieve some of the stress and worry. It will aide with any and all expenses the Alonso family will accrue.
