ARLINGTON, Wash. (Q13 FOX) — Army Staff Sgt. Jose Mangual has been in war zones. But he still wasn’t prepared when he saw the devastation of the Oso, Wash., mudslide with his own eyes.

“Of the five deployments I’ve been on, nothing compares to this,” he said in an interview Monday.

The mud and debris are 70 feet deep in some places. But Mangual is wading through it, because his 13-year-old son ‘Jojo’ is still somewhere in the mess.

“I want to be there, I want to find my son. I wouldn’t do it any other way,” he said.
