Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 18, 1979
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 16, 2006
Texas, USA


Spc. Raymond Salerno of Land O'Lakes, Minnesota was a graduate of Land O' Lakes High School. He was seriously injured in Iraq while serving his country in the United States Army and was presented with a Purple Heart for those injuries. Raymond suffered third-degree burns on his hands, arm, and leg when his Bradley fighting vehicle hit a roadside bomb north of Baghdad in October 2005. He was recovering and went for observation to Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, where his heart failed and he died unexpectedly at age 27. His death was reportedly caused by the stress from injuries he received while serving in Iraq with the United States Army. In October, the 27-year-old Salerno was injured by a roadside bomb and had been recuperating in the United States. His health had steadily been improving before his death and had even proposed to the mother of his seven month old son. He is survived by his fiancée and son, his parents, Raymond and Roberta; brothers, Christopher, Joshua; sister Camille and his grandparents.
