National Guardsman Spc. Dennis Joel Boles died when he collapsed while participating in a 10-mile road march at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. He was assigned to the 171st Aviation Battalion, Florida Army National Guard, Brooksville, FL. The guard anticipates that he will be posthumously promoted to sergeant.
Boles dedicated his life to the United States. After graduating from Crystal River High School in 1978, he served in the Marines from 1980 to 1988. Then re-enlisted in 2003 after an 11 year hiatus. One of Boles most recent passions was playing the drums in the Mid Life Crisis Band - a group he formed with friends to play southern rock music.
In addition to his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Frank Boles, he is survived by his wife, Jill Desmond; two sons, Joel,9, and Aaron, 11; and a stepsons, Joshua Hobgood, 22, and Taylor Desmond, 9.
