Sergeant Alessandro L. "Sandrino" Plutino
Leadership Award

The Sergeant Alessandro L. Plutino Leadership Award was named in the honor of Sergeant Alessandro L. Plutino, of Pitman, New Jersey, who gave the ultimate sacrifice on August 8, 2011 when he was killed by enemy forces while conducting combat operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. He was 28 years old.  He was on his sixth deployment serving as a Team Leader for the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. Sgt. Plutino was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with “V” (for valor is awarded for heroism in combat), , the Army Commendation Medal for Valor, the Meritorious Service Medal, and the Purple Heart. Sgt. Plutino routinely led his men out on combat missions to face the enemy.

Sgt. Plutino exemplified all the true qualities of a leader. He was a self-motivated, disciplined soldier who set a high bar for himself in everything he set out to accomplish. He energetically volunteered to be a part of one of our nation’s most elite forces because of his love and dedication to our country. It is hero’s like Sgt. Plutino that we have to thank for our national security.

The Sgt. Alessandro L. Plutino Leadership Award is awarded jointly by the Board of Directors or the New Jersey Public Safety Accreditation Coalition and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI-LEEDS) on  an annual basis. The award recipient attends the prestigious Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar leadership course given by the FBI.

Charitable contributions are always accepted in his memory with the Rangers Lead the Way Fund or with the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
