Eric Freeman was returning to base for his 3rd deployment to Iraq when the driver of car in which he was a passenger overcorrected, causing the car to flip. Eric was killed in the accident.

A survivor of two tours in Iraq, Eric's Battalion was involved in the fall of Baghdad. He and his Platoon even watched the statue of Saddam toppled in Firdos Square. Eric survived the first assault of Fallujah and was awarded a Purple Heart for injuries sustained in an IED attack on his convoy outside of Fallujah.

Eric, like his fellow Marines, never bragged about their successes, nor did he bemoan their losses; he was stoic and steadfast. He always brought 110% of himself to any task at hand, and his friends and family always came first and last. Eric spoke his mind freely and lived life to the fullest - he let nothing impede him in accomplishing any goal he set for himself or fulfilling any need for a loved one. His humor brought joy and laughter to everyone he met, and his good nature lightened many grim moments in Iraq.

His honesty, love, loyalty, courage, and respect as a devoted son, brother, friend, Marine, and student of life will endure forever.
Lived with dignity
Instilled integrity
Remembered in felicity
Rejoice in eternity
