U.S. Marine Hero, Master Sergeant Hector Trujillo
This is the Official Fundraising Platform for Master Sergeant Hector Trujillo.

I have known Master Sergeant Hector Trujillo since 1993 and consider him my brother. He is a United States Marine stationed in Okinawa, Japan. He is married to Maria Trujillo and is a father of three wonderful children: Anthony, Adam, and Amber. He is a good Christian man always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. On Friday, at 05:00 am, he was headed to work to PT with his Marines. As he was driving on the expressway, he witnessed an accident. He could have ignored it and continued on his way to work, but he didn’t do that. Instead, he followed his heart and he pulled over to assist. As he grabbed a local Japanese man to get him out of the way, he was hit by a car. He suffered a skull fracture and neck & spine injuries. The full extent of his injuries is unknown at this time. He has been placed in a medically induced coma. He was transported from Japan to the United States where he is currently receiving medical care at Naval Medical Center Balboa in San Diego, California. He put himself in harm's way to save another. His selflessness and quick reaction showed his true heroism. While his medical bills will be covered, a great debt will be incurred with transportation, lodging, food, etc for the family. 
Any monetary assistance that can be provided is greatly appreciated. 

Please pray for MSgt Trujillo and his family. God bless!
