LCpl Carlos Alberto Aragon
Birth: Jun. 20, 1990
Chihuahua
Chihuahua, Mexico
Death: Mar. 1, 2010
Sar Banader
Helmand, Afghanistan

Lance Cpl Aragon was assigned to 4th Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 4th Marine Division, Marine Forces Reserve, based out of Camp Pendleton, California. He was primarily a diesel mechanic and driver but was on foot patrol in the village of Sar Banadar when he stepped on a pressure-activated homemade explosive and was killed instantly. Carlos came to Orem, Utah as a young boy and graduated from Mountain View High School in 2008. Teachers remember him as a quiet but friendly kid who made A's in class. After graduation, he immediately enlisted in the Marine Reserves. Carlos had an adventurous streak in him and enjoyed skateboards, cars, guitars and living life on his terms. But he was also a gentle and humble young man who arranged to have flowers sent to his mom on Mother's Day, even while he was deployed. Carlos fully understood what he was up against when he went to Afghanistan. Before leaving on his last deployment, he told his step-father, "Dad, whatever happens, it's in the Lord's hands. If he wants me to come home, I'll come home."
