Sgt. Aaron C. Elandt, 23, of Lowell, Michigan was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment, 1st Armored Division, Baumholder, Germany. He was killed May 30 when his vehicle hit an improvised explosive device in Musayyib, Iraq. The youngest of four children, he joined the military in April 2000 following a family tradition started by his father, Paul Elandt, who served two years in Vietnam. His older sister and two older brothers also served in the Army. He was a solid young man as a student and as a citizen and didn't like much fuss made about him. Rather, he enjoyed the simple things in life, such as fishing and spending time with the family and friends he cherished most. He is survived by his parents Paul and Linda Elandt of Port Hope and adult siblings Steve, Matt and Paula. He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents Leslie and Fern Hazzard. Aaron and Capt. Robert C. Scheetz Jr. were killed when their Humvee struck by an improvised explosive device in Al Musayyib, Iraq, south of Baghdad. Aaron was 23.
