A highly-decorated Marine and war hero, Master Sgt. Torian, 36, died February 15, 2014 from injuries sustained during combat training operations while serving in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. A native of Paducah, Kentucky, Aaron was born June 28, 1977 and was a 1995 graduate of Thomas Stone High School, in Waldorf, Maryland, where he was a standout baseball and football student athlete. He was awarded a football scholarship to the University of Tennessee-Martin where he graduated in 2001 with a bachelor's degree in Health and Human Performance. While a graduate assistant football coach at Tennessee Tech University, he met the love of his life, Jurley Pomeroy, to whom he is married. He completed his master's degree in Instructional Leadership in 2003, and later that year, joined the US Marine Corps.
