Birth: May 16, 1986
Death: Aug. 22, 2005, Iraq

Pfc. Ramon Romero of Huntington Park, California as a toddler, Ramon wanted to do things on his own. If he fell, he didn't want to be picked up, he would get mad. He wanted to get up by himself. Even when he was little, he had a very decisive character. The 2004 high school graduate wanted to become a police officer because his family used to live in Watts and were routinely burglarized. Ramon took taekwondo lessons for three years at Blue Dragon Taekwondo School where he was the ideal student: disciplined, very respectful and always willing to lend a helping hand. After boot camp, he was shipped off to Iraq with a brief stop in Ireland, where he wrote home. "Never in my life did I dream about going to the other side of the world." "I'm prepared for what awaits, and I will take care of myself. Whatever happens, it will be God's decision." He is survived by his father, Juan and his mother, Maria. Ramon died when the vehicle he was in was struck by an improvised explosive device while conducting combat operations near Fallujah. He was 19.
