Eugene Mills III

Lance Cpl. Eugene C. Mills III, age 21, of Laurel, Maryland, died on June 22, 2012, while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

He was assigned to 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Eugene enlisted in the Marine Corps in June of 2008. This was his second deployment to Afghanistan. He had previously served there from September of 2010 to March of 2011. He was due to return home in about a month. 

Friends describe Eugene as a great kid who loved the military and who made an effort in everything he did. He is also described as polite, helpful, respectful and happy. 
Angels of God, pray for Eugene

Others describe him as a wonderful young man. 

Family members are devastated by his death and describe Eugene as a great kid who wanted to make a difference. 

Eugene is survived by many loving friends and relatives, including his mother, Theresa Mills; father Gene Mills; brother Jacob Mills; and stepmother, Melissa Mills.

Pray for the 21 year olds who die in War. Yesterday, they were just boys. 

Let us pray that Eugene Mills III is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
