United States Marine Sgt.
Benjamin Edinger, 24, Green Bay, WI

Following his 1999 graduation from Green Bay West High School, Ben attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. After a year in school, he joined the Marines. He served one tour of duty in Iraq and went back for a second tour when he was injured. Doctors thought he would heal so he could pursue his educational plan of becoming a veterinarian, but his injuries proved to be too much.
