Farah, Afghanistan

Navy Hospitalman Burnett was assigned to First Marine Division Detachment, Twentynine Palms, California. He was a passenger in a vehicle in the Farah province of central-western Afghanistan when a roadside bomb exploded and killed him. Dustin and his family moved to Bullhead City, Arizona his freshman year of high school. He graduated from Mohave High School in Bullhead City in 2006 where he played football for four years, then joined the Navy and deployed as a medic to Afghanistan on April 1. Fellow soldiers called him Doc and he loved the fact he would be taking care of people. Dustin was a happy, energetic and always smiling young man who wanted to go to college when he got home from the Navy. The following is a quote from a 14 year old Dustin: "I will uphold freedoms to people who have none, I seek out those who wish to bring hate and terror to our Country and I want to be a soldier not only of America but of God."
