Marine Lance Cpl. Jourdan L. Grez of Harrisonburg, Virginia had a genuine laugh and joined the Marine Reserves to prove he was a worthy father to his young son. Born the youngest of three sons, he was a gifted artist and loved sports. Jourdan was trying to make it so he’d be able to give his son a nice future someday, a son he absolutely adored. He was a caring person who wanted to help others. After a car wreck killed a close friend in high school, Jourdan became a licensed emergency medical technician. He spent weekends working on ambulances around Richmond. He was killed when his amphibious assault vehicle struck an explosive device while conducting combat operations against enemy forces in Karabilah, Iraq at age 24.
