America's Fallen Hero's

SSG Michael Joseph Truckey

DOB 11 DEC 1943

Died 18 AUG 2021

SSG, USA Retired (last assignment was Fort Rucker AL, Vietnam Service Unit Unknown)

Michael was a Vietnam veteran, serving his country in the U.S. Army for 22 years. He went on to work as a contract employee at AFS on Fort Rucker for 20 years before he retired. He volunteered on the Enterprise Rescue Squad for over 10 years, and he was an Enterprise Reserve Police Officer for 20 years. During those years he was on call 24 hours a day to translate for all Law Enforcement Agencies in the local area. His red truck and lights could not be missed as he was on the scene of an accident, directing the Christmas Parade on Main Street, or on call all hours of the day and night to assist in any way possible. His joy was never more complete than when he had an opportunity to share Jesus with someone in trouble and pray for them before he left the scene.
