CWO Jason Garth DeFrenn

Cheif Warrant Officer 2 Jason DeFrenn of Barnwell, SC. For weeks Jason's family awaited his homecoming, a trip planned as much more than a simple respite from his second tour in Iraq. The nine-year Army veteran was returning to South Carolina for the birth of his child. Four days after Jason died, his wife gave birth to their fourth child. Jason's wife struggled at first with choosing a name for her infant. She decided on the name that she and her husband had picked months ago, rather than naming him after his father. She always did what Jason wanted. She always followed him and supported him. That support took the couple, who met while Jason was managing a Pizza Hut, from South Carolina to Texas, where he was based at Fort Hood after joining the Army nine years ago. He served one tour in Afghanistan before twice going to Iraq. When he was young, he had a spirit of wanting to be a hero. He was one of those kids who wanted adventure. He was 34.
