Staff Sergeant Michael J. McMullen

"Our job is to defend freedom, we will never forget."
May 27, 1980 - January 20, 2006

Staff Sgt. Michael J. McMullen of Salisbury, Md., was assigned to the 243rd Engineer Company, Maryland Army National Guard, Baltimore.

McMullen worked as a paramedic in Salisbury for the fire department. Salisbury Fire Chief David See said McMullen’s actions in the war zone were what he was trained to do. See remembered him as a dedicated professional. “He couldn’t wait to get on the job,” he said. “Firefighting was in his blood. He was a prankster, a straight shooter and a good guy. He was honest.”

The Army awarded a Silver Star posthumously to McMullen, and promoted him to staff sergeant. McMullen also was awarded the Purple Heart, the Army Commendation Medal and the Army Good Conduct Medal.
