Justin Whitmire

Pfc. Justin M. Whitmire, age 20, of Easley, South Carolina, died on December 27, 2011, in Paktia, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. 

He was assigned to the 720th Military Police Battalion, 89th Military Police Brigade, Fort Hood, Texas. 

Jesus, pray for Justin
He joined the military in September 2010 as a health care specialist and had been assigned to Fort Hood, since September 2011. Justin had been in Afghanistan for about 19 days.

Justin graduated from Hillcrest High School in 2010 and immediately joined the military.

He had wanted to serve in the military since childhood and had expressed a desire to stay in the medical field after the military.

Justin is described as a man of faith; as a good guy with a big heart, willing to help others. 

Justin is survived by many loving friends and family members including his parents Donnie and Jennifer Whitmire, and his brother and sister.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Justin Whitmire is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
