U.S. Marine Reserve officer, later a civilian contractor, killed in Iraq. Following in his father's footsteps, Robert Zangas joined the Marines after college.

He served nine months as a Marine Reserve lieutenant colonel with the 4th Civil Affairs Group during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After three months stateside, he returned as a civilian to assist the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) by training Iraqi women in journalism and public relations skills. On March 9, 2004, he was murdered in an ambush along with Fern Holland and Holland's Iraqi interpreter and assistant, Salma Oumashi, while returning to base from a women's center in Karbala.
