Ivan I. Wilson, 22

Wilson was killed in Helmand province, Afghanistan, when a roadside bomb exploded. His family told the Press Democrat that he had struggled with drugs and alcohol and joined the Marines to find a path in life. After Wilson's death, a medic who had tried to save his life wrote his mother: "Ma'am, Willie was really strong at the end and I prayed for him. We will miss him, but I know he's in a better place."
