STAFF SERGEANT JAVIER ROSADO

2022 HALL OF PATRIOTS INDUCTEE

We are proud to induct Javier Rosado of Naugatuck, Connecticut, into the Rush Limbaugh Military Hall of Patriots, 2022 class. Rosado is a U.S. Army Veteran of Puerto Rican descent who grew up in the difficult inner-city communities of Hartford, CT, on public assistance, witnessing societal ills such as drug use and murder.

He began his military career in Panama preserving peace and instilling security after Operation Just Cause, with a particular focus on maintaining aircraft. Rosado is proud to report that Panama now has a thriving economy and its citizens, such as his own wife, are prospering. He stated that, “Democracy and freedom from oppression works. My wife’s family are living witnesses.” After serving overseas, he returned to the United States with posts in Savannah, Georgia and Ft. Wainwrights, Alaska.

His inspiration to enter the service came from his father, who served as a National Guardsman and took Rosado and his brother to the base to meet fellow guard members. Rosado was also always fascinated by military aircraft including military helicopters and joined the Army to serve the higher purpose the uniform represents.

Rosado’s own children are “army brats” who were born in Panama. His daughter joined the U.S. Air Force and served in Panama and Iraq. His son also joined the Air Force and now works in the private sector building military aircraft engines. Rosado wrote that it was Rush’s “leadership, inspiration and guidance over the years that carried me forward.”
