Project 33 Memorial Foundation is proud to announce our 2024 Honoree, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Marcus V. Muralles. SFC Muralles was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) at Hunter Army Airfield, Ga. as an aerial flight medic.


SFC Muralles died on 28 June 2005 when his MH-47D Chinook Helicopter was struck by a rocket propelled grenade near Jalalabad, Afghanistan during Operation Red Wings.

Marcus was born to Guatemalan immigrants, and was a native of Shelbyville, Indiana. Muralles enlisted in the Army as an Infantryman in December 1988 and completed Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training before assignment to 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Fort Benning, Georgia. He was reclassified in 1998 as a Medical Sergeant. In 2003, he completed Green Platoon and was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia.

SFC Muralles was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. After his death it was announced that he had been selected for the Interservice Physician Assistant Program.

With the blessing of the Muralles family, Project 33 Memorial Foundation will host our 7th Memorial Day run in honor of SFC Muralles. Funds raised during our 2024 campaign will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation at the request of the family.

7th Annual Memorial Day Run

*May 27, 2024

A Memorial Run from the Town of Hamburg Park (Hamburg Beach) to Hamburg Brewing Company. Total distance of 6.8 Miles. Not a race, just a community run to raise awareness for our fellow Special Operations members who were KIA. The flag will lead the way. Come hang and party with us afterwards at the Brewery for mingling and beer at the Buffalo Blues Veteran’s Benefit.

Only one rule to run with Project 33; the flag represents the fallen, and no runner will pass the flag. Come dressed in your patriotic spirit and bring your endurance
