864SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) passed a measure through the Illinois Senate today honoring Sergeant Marcos Leonardo Gudino, who served the Illinois Army National Guard.

Senate Joint Resolution 1 will dedicate the US 20 bridge under Illinois Route 31 to him by renaming it the Sergeant Marcos Leonardo Gudino Memorial Bridge.

“It is an honor to be able to pay tribute to Marcos in this way,” Castro said. “He was a young man that had already accomplished so much and was meant to accomplish more. Today is a day where we remember Marcos Leonardo Gudino. I hope by dedicating this portion of the highway to him, it will serve as a reminder of what a great and courageous man he was.”

Sergeant Leonardo Gudino enlisted in August 2010 and served the Illinois Army National Guard as a medic. He planned on working for the Village of Streamwood after being offered a police officer position.

Sergeant Leonardo Gudino passed away from injuries he sustained when his military ambulance crashed while returning home from a weekend training.
