Sergeant Jonnie Lee 'Jon' Stiles

Jon is very present in our lives since he received his Angel Duty orders. He was born July 06, 1970, in Oklahoma. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at 19 and he served 7 years. He tried the civilian world; but his true calling was serving our country in the military. He enlisted in the ARMY. Later he joined the Colorado National Guard.

Jon deployed to Afghanistan in 2008. He would always look after his men first, putting their safety above all. This was evident on October 10 of 2008 when he pulled two fellow Soldiers from a burning Humvee. Though he sustained damage to his vocal cords and lung damage, he refused to leave “his kids”. Jon went on a mission on the 13th of November 2008 in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, when an IED took his life.
