I was asked to share my experiences in the participation of Operation Urgent Fury. At the time I was busy with my personal life. I was the senior machine Gunner in 1st plt Aco 275 Rangers.
. Trujillo administered first aid to me when I caught shrapnel in my chest at Grande Anse.
I will always be indept to Sgt Trujillo for helping me. And his heroic actions as platoon combat medic at Calvigny Barracks during the air assault mission, where he saved the lives of several Rangers during the Blackhawks crash. God Speed Steven!
RLTW! Sgt. Mike " Lucky" Luciano 2/75 Ranger 81-84
