Sergeant Julian M. Kevianne joined the Marine Corps in 2009 and deployed in support of OEF from 2012 to 2013. He was promoted to sergeant in 2015. Kevianne was killed when his KC-130 aircraft crashed in Mississippi.

Everyone remembers Julian for his mustache, his glasses, and his distinctive voice. A general once told him that he sounded like “The Godfather.” He loved Star Wars. His call sign was “Lando.”

“I want people to remember Julian for his courage, his humility, and his kindness. He would give you the shirt off his back and help anyone at a moment’s notice. Everyone loved him, and no one ever had a bad word to say about him,” recalled his wife, Sherry Kevianne.
