Capt Travis Allen Ford
Birth: Nov. 19, 1972
Saint Paul
Howard County
Nebraska, USA
Death: Apr. 4, 2003, Iraq

Marine Capt Ford was assigned to Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron (HMLA) - 267, Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, Camp Pendleton, California. Ford was killed in action when his AH-1W Super Cobra helicopter crashed during combat operations near Ali Aziziyal. Travis graduated from Ogallala High School in Ogallala, Nebraska where he was a running back. He then attended the University of Nebraska where he was known as the fearless but humble guy with the big smile and the "one-man moving van" who used his pickup to help his college friends move. He was a boxing champion on Lincoln's Greek Fight Night, winning the most outstanding fighter honor two years in a row. He was also a member of the officer candidate program. As a member of the college Yell Squad the cheerleading team Travis was always the first on the field to charge up spectators. During halftime at one football game, he asked his team members to hold up a sign that said, "Deon, will you marry me?" while he yelled on the megaphone, "What do you say?" Then he ran up the stands, got on his knees and gave her a ring. Travis graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1997 with a bachelor's degree in business administration. He followed in his older brother's footsteps when he joined the Marines after graduation. (bio by: Brenda N)
