Spec Levi Bond Kinchen
Birth: Feb. 15, 1982
Albany
Livingston Parish
Louisiana, USA
Death: Aug. 9, 2003
Baghdad, Iraq

Army Spc. Kinchen was assigned to 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment, Fort Polk, Louisiana. A fellow soldier tried to wake Kinchen and noticed he was not breathing (believed to be heat related). Levi loved the outdoors and started hunting as a child, killing his first deer when he was 9. He graduated from Albany High School in 2000 where he excelled in industrial arts and other courses in which he worked with his hands. Despite being skinny, about 5 feet 6 inches, and having bad eyesight, he joined the Army in August, 2000, and completed basic training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma where he specialized in field artillery. He maintained, fixed and loaded howitzers as part of a Fort Polk-based field artillery unit. Levi then did an 18-month tour in Germany and a six-month peace mission in Kosovo before shipping out to Baghdad. He was a fun-loving jokester and avid outdoorsman who willingly faced combat despite his fears.
