Sgt. Aron C. Blum of Tucson, Ariz., was a Scout with pack 700, participant with Sahuaro Little League, graduated with Honors from Sahuaro HS in 2002 where he played Baseball, Football, and was a Thespian. Enlisted with United States Marine Corps in 2002 and proudly served his country in Iraq. Even after being diagnosed with a rare blood disorder that only a bone marrow transplant might correct, Aron didn't initially want to be shipped back to the United States from Iraq. He was upset he wasn't being sent back to his unit. That was his whole concern. He died of aplastic anemia, the failure of the bone marrow to make new blood cells, a condition that strikes only two in 1 million Americans. He was 22. He was buried in Tucson with full military honors.
