LTC Jaimie Elizabeth Leonard
Birth: Jan. 29, 1974
Death: Jun. 8, 2013, Afghanistan

Lt Col. Jaimie E. Leonard, 39, of Warrick, N.Y., died June 8, in Sharana, Afghanistan, of injuries suffered from small arms fire received at Zarghun Shahr, Afghanistan. The soldiers were assigned to the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, N.Y. From a young age, she dreamed of serving in the military and achieved this ambition with over 16 years of honorable service in the US Army. A brilliant and committed officer, Jaimie was respected and beloved by those with whom she served. She was an inspiration to all. LTC Jaimie was preceded in death by her father, Robert Fulton Leonard Jr. and mother, Patricia Ann Oberst. She is survived by five siblings: Elizabeth Anne Harman and husband JR Harman and daughters Ava and Leah of Putnam Valley, NY; Hannah J. Rudy and husband Travis Shores and son Theolonious and daughter Fionna of Hanover, NH; Allyson Basha and husband Mohammed Basha and daughter Nina of Burlington, VT; Samantha Leonard, presently serving with the Peace Corps in Grenada, West Indies; and Robert Leonard of East Dorset, VT; step-mother Sally Asbury Leonard of East Dorset, VT; and three godchildren, Kristen Courage, Katherine Kemkes, and Ava Harman. Jaimie will be lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews, godchildren, and many friends and colleagues. She was a true inspiration and consummate soldier- dedicated to her work, family, and friends - and she will be profoundly missed. Visitation will be held from 4-8 p.m., Wednesday, June 19 at William F. Hogan Funeral Home, 135 Main Street, Highland Falls, NY. Services will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, June 20, 2013 at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Chapel, West Point. Jaimie will be interred in West Point Cemetery with full military honors. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Fisher House Foundation www.fisherhouse.org which provides free or low cost lodging to veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers.
