Remembering the Marines
by Dr Margaret Aranda
Marine Cpt. Ryan Anthony Beaupre was affectionately characterized by family friend Patricia Gould as, "...the kind of kid you want your daughter to marry, you want your son to be."
Video 1. Sung by Christian band NF, Breaking Benjamin; "Anthem of the Angels." Laid to rest after his honorable Memorial Service at St. Anne's, Cpt. Ryan Anthony Beaupre was 30 years old when he died. Hoping to make it back from Iraq to attend his sister's wedding, Cpt. Ryan Beaupre quit his accountant job to fly with the military. Now he flies with the Angels. Link to video: here.
Cpt. Ryan Beaupre was assigned to Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 268, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, Marine Corps Air Station, Camp Pendleton, California. He was a college graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University. Truly a Champion.
Killed in a March 21 CH-46E helicopter crash in Kuwait, he had the smile of apple pie, baseball, and hot dogs: and gave his All, making his life honorable and truly worth living. Representing all of those in Memorial, we honor him and provide this link for donations to Fallen Soldiers. Please make sure that your family and friends of a Fallen Hero get this information, some free of cost:
