Spec Justin Ray Mixon
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 30, 1985
Death: Jun. 1, 2008
Baghdad, Iraq

Army Spc. Mixon was assigned to the 1st Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, Vilseck, Germany. He died of wounds sustained when his vehicle encountered an improvised explosive device. Justin was a typical kid growing up energetic and rambunctious. His family moved to Bogalusa, Louisiana when he was a teenager and while living there, he attended Louisiana Technical College and worked as a welder and other odd jobs. In May 2005, Justin decided to join the Army and trained as an infantryman. For almost 10 months, he climbed into the forward compartment in a Stryker armored personnel carrier each day and drove his fellow soldiers through Baghdad's dangerous streets. Each day, he did his job without fear and never complained. Justin always had a smile on his face, a positive outlook and great love for his family and fellow soldiers.
