Edward Dycus

Lance Cpl. Edward J. Dycus, age 22, of Greenville, Mississipi, died on February 1, 2012, while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. 

He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. 

It is believed that he was shot by an Afghan soldier who was guarding a joint operating base with him.

He attended Riverside High School and graduated in 2008. Eddie entered boot camp in 2010 and hadn't been in Afghanistan more than a few months at the time of his death.
Gabriel, Archangel, pray for Edward

Friends describe him as born for the military. They also state that he always put others before himself and always had a smile on his face. 

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