Birth: Nov. 3, 1983
Indianapolis
Marion County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jun. 7, 2003, Iraq

Army PFC Halling was assigned to the 401st Military Police Co., Ft. Hood, Texas. Halling was at his post at a military police station in Tikrit when his unit began taking small-arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades. He ordered others in his unit to take cover while he remained at his post and returned fire until he was hit by shrapnel. Halling, a graduate of Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis, was awarded a posthumous Purple Heart and has been nominated for a Silver Star, the Army's third-highest medal for valor behind the Medal of Honor and Distinguished Service Cross. Even as a child, Jesse Halling was focused on life as a soldier. "Everything was about the military," said his mother, Pam Halling. "Ever since he was in kindergarten, drawing pictures of jets and helicopters and tanks ... it was just in him." Jesse was a good-looking, all-American type, with a passion for motorcycles and his Camaro.
