Justin J. Swanson, 21
At a memorial service held in Afghanistan, Lt. Col. William McCollough recalled Swanson as "full of love for his family and home and dedicated to the protection of others." Swanson was killed Nov. 10 when a bomb exploded beneath the Humvee he was driving. Another Marine suffered a broken neck and is being treated at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. He was the fourth Marine from the 1-5 killed during the seven-month deployment that is set to end within weeks.
