Army Spc. Gleason was assigned to the 519th Military Intelligence Battalion, Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Gleason was traveling in a three-vehicle convoy during a storm from Mosul to Tikrit (2 HUMMVs, 1 light medium tactical vehicle). A civilian vehicle dodged a pothole causing the HUMMVs to swerve. There was not enough stopping distance between the vehicles causing the LMTV to swerve off the road and turn over, causing the death of Gleason and two other soldiers. Even though Michael was half a world away, he often thought of his home and what he wanted to do when he left the Army. He was almost finished with his four-year stint and planned on coming home to Warren for the summer. Michael was then going to decide whether to go to college or re-enlist.
