    Sergeant Ricardo Ramirez, squad leader, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, sheds a block during a football game here, Oct. 21, 2013. Ramirez upholds the regiment’s nickname, the Fighting Fifth, who despite losing his hand during combat operations, plays cornerback on the team. Ramirez deployed with 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, to Iraq where he lost his hand when a flash bang grenade he was holding detonated. After the injury, Ramirez accomplished 17 pull-ups during his first physical fitness test by taping his injured wrist to the bar.
