Cadet CSM Gabriel Rodriguez, A Hero Among Us:

On 11 November, 2014 Cadet Command Sergeant Major Gabriel Rodriguez was presented with a moment that required quick thinking and action on his part.  After the Veterans Day Parade he noticed an elderly gentleman who was standing on a railroad track and the elderly gentleman had a walker and was unaware of an approaching train.

C/CSM Gabriel Rodriguez jumped from the car he was in and ran over to help the gentleman off the track with only 20 to 25 yards to spare.  This act saved the elderly gentleman’s life and resulted in C/CSM Rodriguez receiving the Rio Rico Career and Technology “Hero’s Among Us” award, a Rio Rico High School Athletic Letter, and a Lettermen’s Jacket from the Superintendent of the Santa Cruz Unified School District #35.
