LCpl Jordan Christian Haerter
Birth: Jul. 30, 1988
Suffolk County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 22, 2008, Iraq

United States Marine Corps Lance Corporal Jordan Christian Haerter, age 19, was killed in action April 22, 2008, in Ramadi, Iraq, by a suicide bomber intent on killing the 33 Marines in the compound that he was protecting. Also killed was Marine Corporal Jonathan Yale. Jordan was born July 30, 1988 in Southampton, NY. He was the the only child of, and is survived by his parents JoAnn Lyles and Christian Haerter of Sag Harbor, NY. He attended school in Sag Harbor and graduated from Pierson High School along with his beloved Class of 2006. Jordan entered the Marine Corps directly after high school. In boot camp he earned the qualification as Platoon High Shooter in his Alpha Company. He was a member of the fiercely proud and storied 1st Battalion, 9th Marines also known as the "The Walking Dead". He has been awarded the Purple Heart for his actions in Iraq along with the Combat Action Ribbon, the Iraqi Campaign Medal, the Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Medal, and the Sea Service Deployment Ribbon. Along with his military honors, Jordan was presented with with a Southampton Town Police Department Badge, and a Sag Harbor Police Department Gold Badge. He had a wide circle of friends in Sag Harbor who remember him for his infectious smile, quick-witted humor with dry delivery and his kind and gentle demeanor. He took flying lessons and soloed at age 16 prior to obtaining his driver's license.

On February 20, 2009, LCpl Haerter's family was presented with his posthumous Navy Cross.

Rest in peace Devil Dog. Thank you for your service. We all know if it had not been for you and Cpl Tyler's sacrifice many more would have died. You will always be remembered in Marine Corps history.
