Trevor Pinnick

Spc. Trevor A. Pinnick, age 20, of Lawrenceville, Illinois, died on June 12, 2012, in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device.

He was assigned to the 18th Engineer Company, 1st Battalion, 37th Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington.

Trevor graduated from Lawrenceville High School in 2010. He entered the Army in August of 2010 and reported to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, for basic training. He deployed with his unit to Afghanistan in April of 2012. This was his first deployment.

Trevor has received the National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon.
Jesus, pray for Trevor

Family members stated that Trevor had a warm heart and a light heart. He was a jokester and wanted to make you laugh. They also stated that he talked about making a career in the Military, despite the risks involved. 

He is also described as a good kid and a loving brother, father, husband and son.

Trevor is survived by many loving friends and relatives, including his father and mother, Thomas and Nancy Pinnick; his brother Thomas Pinnick Jr.; his twin sisters, Kayla Lynn and Bethany Rose; his wife, Martha; and his daughter, Melody. 

Pray for the 20 year olds who die in combat. Yesterday, they were just boys.

Let us pray that Trevor Pinnick is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
