Death: Nov. 5, 2009

Army Pfc Nemelka was a 2008 graduate of West Jordan High School, West Jordan, Utah. His sense of duty to his country came from both of his grandfathers, his uncles, an aunt and cousin who all served in the military. In October 2008, he joined the Army and was scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan in January. Aaron had barely finished his service training when he was killed at Fort Hood. He was one of 300 soldiers who were lined up to get shots and eye-testing at the Soldier Readiness Center at Fort Hood when shots rang out. He was one of the first ones shot and died instantly. The soldiers were processing to either return from or about to be sent overseas. A disgruntled U.S. Army psychiatrist killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others before he was brought down. Aaron was so concerned about people being killed by roadside bombs that he wanted to help in any way he could he signed up for one of the most dangerous jobs the military has: defusing bombs. He was so proud of what he was doing in the military that he was considering making it his career. Aaron was an Eagle Scout and loved skateboarding, snowboarding, golf, bowling, music and spending time with family and friends. He was a kind and gentle soul, quiet and well spoken. Friends and family will miss his beautiful smile and cheerful, fun loving personality.
