Summary[edit]

Description
English: After realizing he couldn’t reach Sgt. Brennan and Spc. Eckrode through the wall of enemy fire, Staff Sgt. Gallardo attempted to rejoin Spc. Giunta and his fire team. While travelling toward Spc. Giunta, Staff Sgt. Gallardo was struck in the helmet by an AK-47 round and fell into a ditch. Spc. Giunta immediately ran through AK-47, PKM, and RPG fire to help Staff Sgt. Gallardo to cover. By the time they reached cover near Pfc. Casey and Pfc. Clary, Spc. Giunta was struck twice by enemy fire. He was hit on the lower part of his chest, which was stopped by the Enhanced-Small Arms Protective Insert (E-SAPI) plate in his Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV). The Shoulder-launched Multipurpose Assault Weapon-Disposable (SMAW-D) he had slung on his back also stopped a bullet from striking his left shoulder.
