Sgt Jarrod William Black
Birth: Jan. 21, 1977
Peru
Miami County
Indiana, USA
Death: Dec. 12, 2003, Iraq

Army Sgt. Black was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 34th Armor Regiment based in Fort Riley, Kansas. Black was killed when his tanker exploded after his convoy was hit by an improvised explosive device in Ramadi. Jarrod joined the Army in 1999 after graduating from Peru High School. His mother remembers him as a rotten student, but a late bloomer with tremendous charisma and a devastating smile. While he was stationed in Germany, he would call his mom on Sundays when the Indianapolis Colts were on television. They would watch the game at the same time. Jarrod wasn't able to talk with his family back home very often, but two days before his death he got a chance to call home. Jarrod and his wife agreed on the phone on a name for their baby girl expected in April. He learned of his wife's pregnancy just days after he arrived in Iraq in September. He is survived by his wife, Shawna, and two sons, ages 2 and 3, from a previous relationship.
