Capt Andrew David "Sleepy" LaMont
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 1, 1971
Eureka
Humboldt County
California, USA
Death: May 19, 2003, Iraq

Marine Capt LaMont was assigned to Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron - 364, Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, Camp Pendleton, California. La Mont died when his CH-46 Sea-Knight helicopter went down in the Shatt al Hillah Canal shortly after takeoff. It had been on a resupply mission in support of civil military operations. Andrew was born at Andrews Air Force Base, where his father, James, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel, was stationed. He was the youngest of nine children, and the only one to follow their father's path into the military. For him, flying was a passion. Andrew was part of the helicopter detail that flew the first Marines into Afghanistan following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He was single and had served with the Marines since graduating from San Diego State University in 1994. He served in Kosovo in 1999, helped in the rescue effort after an earthquake in Turkey last year and he also served in Afghanistan. He was known as "Sleepy" to his fellow soldiers. One said, "I don't know exactly how he earned that call sign, but with his calm manner and laid-back attitude, it was quite fitting—not to mention he was as fond of logging rack-time as any of us. He had a great sense of humor and a quick wit."
