Spec Armer Nathan Burkart
Birth: Dec. 10, 1979
Montgomery County
Maryland, USA
Death: May 11, 2006
Baghdad, Iraq

Army Spc Burkart was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 71st Cavalry Regiment, 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, New York, as a cavalry scout. Burkart was the gunner in a turret of a high-mobility, multipurpose-wheeled vehicle conducting combat patrols when an improvised explosive device struck the vehicle. Armer was an A-student and played the saxophone with the marching band at Col. Zadok Magruder High School, Rockville, from where he graduated in 1997. He was also an outstanding member of the school's ROTC program that won him a full scholarship to attend Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He won two leadership awards in high school and rose to the rank of ROTC captain. Armer never neglected to wear his uniform the three times a month required of ROTC participants and looked better than many active duty soldiers he just had the look and took great pride in the way he wore his uniform. After only two years, he left Lehigh to join the Army in July 2000. He served in Afghanistan from August 2003 to April 2004, before being sent to Iraq. Armer was a great person. He was trustworthy, reliable and had a lot of potential to become a dynamic leader in the military. He was proud to be in the Army and volunteered for combat - he had a nice safe position which he chose to give up. He is survived by his wife of three years, Christy.
