Corp Jonn Joseph Edmunds
Birth: Jan. 3, 1981
Colorado Springs
El Paso County
Colorado, USA
Death: Oct. 19, 2001, Pakistan

Army Corp Edmunds was assigned to the 75th Ranger Regiment based at Fort Benning, Ga. Edmunds was killed in a Black Hawk helicopter accident as the helicopter was preparing for search-and-rescue duty in neighboring Afghanistan. Jonn was born in Colorado Springs and his family moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming shortly thereafter. He participated in American Legion's Boys State in 1998, a prestigious program offering student leaders government skills and he also joined the Future Business Leaders of America his senior year. Jonn graduated from Cheyenne East in 1999 and joined the Army the same year. At only 20, he exuded confidence, maturity and optimism rare for someone so young. It was those very qualities that helped Edmunds to become an Army Ranger. Jonn was one of 32 Rangers chosen out of 268 applicants, and he epitomized the U.S. Army Rangers. He once wrote that he saw himself in the Army for the next 20 to 25 years: "I will be contributing to myself as well as for the defense of this country and for the betterment of the world." Jonn is survived by his wife Anne.
