A Message From Sergio Lugo

Fighting Saints,

Sorry I can't make this year's Alumni Gathering as I reside in Denver, Colorado.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that there was still a ROTC program at St. John's University.  I firmly support the continued provision of such military training at SJU for potential military roles in defense of our nation.

The location of your offices at the old gym was approximately where the rifle range was located when the school had a rifle team; of which I was a part.

Following my commissioning, I entered the U.S. Army.  Served in Vietnam as an Infantry Platoon Leader with the 2nd Battalion, Mechanized Infantry of the 1st Infantry Division.  That battalion was recently deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan where it has been performing outstanding in the fight against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.

Best wishes for your future, continued success.

Sergio Lugo, Class of 68.
