|Let the memory of SSgt Cameron be with us forever|
43, of Waipahu, Hawaii; assigned to the 257th Transportation Company, Army Reserve, Las Vegas, Nev.; died Sept. 1 when he was hit by a truck while changing his vehicle’s tire in Kuwait City, Kuwait.
Staff Sgt. Cameron B. Sarno was full of energy. After driving a truck all day, he would drop by to see his aunt and the two would talk late into the night. And his enthusiasm for the Army Reserve was boundless.
“He was gung-ho,” said his aunt, Nancy Gurdison. “He really believed he should do something for his country.”
Sarno, 43, of Las Vegas, was killed Sept. 1 while changing a flat tire on a heavy transport truck in Kuwait City, Kuwait. He had 19 years of combined active and reserve duty in the Army.
A native of Hawaii, he joined the military soon after graduating from high school, following in the footsteps of his late father, James Sarno Sr. His son, Cameron Bryan “B.J.” Takeuchi, served in Afghanistan.
“He always had a smile on his face,” said Spc. Anthony Grimando. “There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for anybody. He was selfless.”
