Cicero soldier returns home with Bronze Star
CICERO – U.S. Army Sgt. Mario I. Cruz said he was shuffling around the house April 4 when he heard the Cicero fire truck’s siren getting closer to his mother’s home. He had no idea it was coming to get him.
The surprised soldier was whisked away in grand fashion to the Cicero Community Center, where town officials, friends, family and strangers had gathered to say hello and thank you to the young man who not only completed his third tour of duty in a combat zone in January, but came home with a Bronze Star “for participation in acts of heroism, involving conflict with an armed enemy.”
The surprise party was thrown by Military Families of Cicero United (MFCU).
