Jason was the guy that everyone loved. Your typical “southern boy”, heart of gold and would give you the shirt off his back. Everyone that met him was his friend. He was always there for his friends when they needed him, and expected nothing in return. The greatest person I’ve ever known.

Jason W. Vaughn was KIA on May 10, 2007 in Baqubah, Iraq when his vehicle was struck by a Deep Buried IED. His element was on their way to help another element that was in direct contact with the enemy. He died on his way to help his brothers in arms who were pinned down.
