Benjamin K. Rauschenberger

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Hobe Sound, FL

Branch of Service: U.S. Marine Corps

Rank: Corporal

Benjamin was in the Marine Corps for 4 1/2 years when he was killed. He was in FAST Company and was in Afghanistan with 2/7 Dog Company in 2012. He was a Designated Marksman and was 2 weeks of training away from being a Marine Sniper.

Ben was always the life of the party. He was always making people laugh. He was never afraid of anything but lip gloss and lotion. He was a loving and caring person with a big heart.

He wanted to be in the military since he was 3 years old. He gave his life for our country, and if he would have had more lives to live knowing the outcome, he would have given every one of them. His favorite Bible verse was Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Age: 25
