In memory of my brother L. Cpl Dennis J. Veater

Dennis J. Veater was born in Bethesda, MD and lived in Quantico, VA and attended Russell Elementary School there. From there, the family moved to Reading, PA where he attended Jacksonwald Elementary School and then on to Mission Meadows Elementary School in Oceanside, CA before finishing elementary school in Okinawa, Japan. Dennis attended Kubasaki High School through the 10th grade, and eventually graduated from Abington Heights High School in Clarks Summit, PA. While attending Pennsylvania State University, Worthington/Scranton, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, based out of Wyoming, PA at the age of 17.

After attending a training mission in Honduras, Dennis was asked if he would volunteer for service in Iraq, which he proudly accepted. When his son, Dominick, was 7 months old, Dennis was deployed to Fallujah, Iraq, in the Al Anbar Province. He was scheduled to return in March, but as fate would have it, his last run would not be his last. His group was asked to do one final delivery of medical supplies. Dennis was driving the vehicle, and whilst reversing into an alley, the front driver's tire hit an IED. For a day, he fought for his life, but lost his battle while awaiting transport to Germany in Balad, Iraq on 09 March 2007.

Anyone that knew Dennis would describe him as an amazing young man, full of life, humor, dedication and love. He is deeply missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.

In loving memory of my brother,
L. Cpl. Dennis J. Veater, USMC Reserves
