Benjamin Todd Roberts

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Dallas , TX

Branch of Service: United States Air Force

Rank: SSGT

USAF Pararescueman (PJ)

Ben trained to serve as an elite special operation force to “go anywhere to rescue anyone at any time by any means.” He received a marksmanship award and USAF Commendation Medal for saving a life and exemplary leadership. Ben was 1% of the 1% who rose to the physical, intellectual and emotional challenges of pararescue.

Our Ben was an excellent athlete…loved all competitive sports and outdoors from rock climbing, skydiving, scuba diving, beach volleyball to 2-stepping. We ache in his absence but remain grateful we were blessed by the kindest eyes, most contagious laugh and genuine heart.

Age: 31
