Sgt. Joseph E. Proctor of Indianapolis, Ind., was a 1987 graduate of Whiteland Community High School, about 20 miles south of Indianapolis.

He previously was a member of the Guard from 1986 to 1988, when he went into the Army on active duty and served in Desert Storm. His military job specialty was as a welder and a refueler, and he was working as a refueler in Iraq.
