    Senior Master Sergeant Israel Del Toro brought smiles to the Los Angeles Air force Base members during his visit as part of Wingman day at Space and Missile Systems Center, Dec. 6, 2018. During his speech in front of a large SMC audience, SMSgt. Isreal Del Toro Jr. spoke about his life experiences and what motivated him to make a comeback after being injured in combat., In 2005, Del Toro was on deployment in Afghanistan when his Humvee rolled over a buried landmine and exploded. He suffered third degree burns on more than 80 percent of his body and both of his hands were seriously damaged. Doctors gave him a 15 percent chance of survival, but Del Toro woke up from a three-month coma more determined to survive than ever. He was the first ever 100 percent combat disabled Air Force technician to re-enlist, and he continues to serve his country as a member of the U.S. Air Force “Wings of Blue” parachute team.
