KILLED BEFORE HIS TIME - ON PAPER. AT LEAST. A LOOK INTO THE LIFE AND STRUGGLES OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY VETERAN AND HIS BATTLE AGAINST THE SYSTEM THAT DECLARED HIM DEAD.
Carmelo Rodriguez is an author, a veteran, and a father who learned early in his life, that life is never easy. When an error by the Veteran's Administration declared him 'Dead,' he lost all of his benefits and found himself in a battle with the US Government bombarded with bureaucracy and repercussions.
¿Agency after agency followed suit and declared him dead as well sending him into a spiraling effort to claim his identity and to be reported alive. To bring light to his case and to help others who may be going through the same thing, he started a vlog, which ultimately gained him national attention. He fights for justice for other veterans.
