Spec Gregory Paul Sanders
Birth: May 7, 1984
Hobart
Lake County
Indiana, USA
Death: Mar. 24, 2003, Iraq

Army Spc Sanders was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 69th Armor, Fort Stewart, Georgia, as an ammunition loader in a tank platoon. He was killed in a sniper shooting in Iraq as his unit moved north toward Baghdad. Greg, the son of a Navy sailor, was wearing combat gear even before he was out of diapers. "He wanted to be a soldier," said his mother, Leslie. "He was born to be a soldier." Gregory enlisted in the Army right after graduating from Hobart High in 2001. He struggled over whether to join the Marines but chose the Army. He knew life in the military could be dangerous. The family received a letter from Sanders hours before they learned he had been killed. It was written two weeks earlier in Kuwait. His morale was great, and he said he anticipated coming home in June or July. His wife, Ruthann, was his high school sweetheart, and they have a 14-month-old daughter. (bio by: Brenda N)
