Captain Justin Peterson of Davisburg, Michigan is a Baptist minister's son who wanted to follow his grandfather's example and join the Marines. Peterson's grandfather, Don Woodworth, had been a warrant officer in the Marines. From the time he was old enough to talk about a career, Justin wanted o follow in his grandfather's footsteps and be a Marine. Justin was proud to be an officer in the U.S. Marines. He enlisted in the Marine Corps out of Southfield Christian High School in 1992. He later earned a business degree at Taylor University, an evangelical Christian school in Upland, Ind., and received an officer's commission. His 21-year-old brother, Joshua, is also stationed in Iraq. He was very close with his siblings and enjoyed many practical jokes and much laughter with them. Justin is survived by his wife; and his three children. Preceded in death by grandparents Ralph and Hazel Peterson. He was 32.
