The Incomplete Service
Artifact: Paramedic Badge/CPAT Certification
Camilo Senchnya was loved by his friends and family for his humor and desire to make people smile. He was incredibly driven and passionate to become a certified paramedic. He dedicated himself in the gym to meet the rigorous requirements of joining a California fire department. Friends and family described him as hard working and as having a heart of gold.
Camilo was nearing completion of his paramedic certification and firefighter training when he was killed by a stray bullet that hit his heart. This badge was to be presented at his pinning ceremony, a life-changing moment he was never able to experience.
