CAMP HURRICANE POINT, Ar Ramadi, Iraq (March 23, 2005) -Lance Cpl. Jaime M. Magallanes, a rifleman with 2nd Squad, 3rd Platoon, Company A, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, was shot by an enemy sniper while on a patrol in the city here March 23. The 7.62 mm round nicked the top, right portion of the 22-year-old San Antonio, Texas, native's armored chest plate. The impact caused minor abrasions and bruising to his chest, nothing life threatening. The warrior refused to throw in the towel and continued to patrol with his fellow Marines for more than an hour and a half before receiving medical attention at the battalion aid station here.
