Benjamin boarded the tanker, Samra, to inspect it for Iraqi oil. Shortly after he boarded, the tanker sank in the Persian Gulf. The tanker was under the flag of the United Arab Emirates. His body was recovered November 23, 2001. Benjamin got a chance to do a few of the things he wanted to do in life: graduated from high school, traveled a bit, married his high school sweetheart.
