SPC Brian Alex Vaughn

Army combat medic
Kia 6-21-05
Ramadi Iraq

Alex was the light of our family! He loved everyone and everyone loved him. He was a combat medic and loved his men dearly. He refused to take leave during his 12 month tour in Ramadi, Iraq because he didn’t trust anyone to take care of his men.

Alex was killed 3 weeks before he was to return home.

Our lives were turned upside down and our hearts were broken forever. But he told me 2 months before his death “ Mom I know I’m exactly where I am supposed to be and I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to do with my life”. He would do it all over again if he knew the outcome.

He was one of a kind and the world is a darker place without him.
