Tony graduated from East Central High School in St. Leon, Indiana, in 2005. He participated in football while in high school and is remembered as bright, quick-witted and had a gift for telling and writing stories. He joined the Army shortly after graduation because he wanted to be one of the good guys, and he wanted to protect us. He left for Iraq on June 24 and is remembered by his fellow soldiers for his sense of humor, positive outlook, friendly demeanor and professionalism. Before Tony left for overseas, he had a talk with his mother. His dad had died of cancer three years earlier and if anything should happen to him, he wanted to be cremated like his dad and have his ashes spread alongside his dad.

Tony will posthumously receive the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart. His decorations also include the National Defense Service Medal, the Iraqi Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Army Overseas Service Medal and the Combat Action Badge.
--------
Tony Seig, of Sunman, Indiana was a 2005 graduate of East Central High School. When ECHS students are juniors, they have to identify their dreams. He did an American Dream poster about his passion for his family, and his passion for his country. Even then Seig knew he wanted to serve in the military. He could always get them to laugh as a class. He was never shy, but rather very outgoing. Seig's father died in 2005. He was kind of quiet after that happened.

Now the National Guard member is survived by his mother, Linda, and two sisters, one older and another a year younger. Seig's awards and decorations include the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Army Commendation medals and Combat Action Badge. He was 19.
