LCpl David Keith Fribley
Birth: Feb. 15, 1977
Kosciusko County
Indiana, USA
Death: Mar. 23, 2003, Iraq

Marine Lance Corp Fribley was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Fribley was among nine Marines killed by Iraqis, who at first indicated surrender, but then started firing as the Marines approached them. In one of the last comments he made to his family, David said he was just doing his job, and whatever happened, he didn't want to be made out as a hero. To those who knew him, that was the kind of person he was. David was a "saw man." A saw man operates a machine gun that fires 1,800 rounds per minute. The news of his death hit hard at Warsaw High School, where he was described as a model student and where he was a standout athlete in football and track and field. He worked as recreation manager for Shell Point, a retirement community in Fort Meyers. Prior to leaving for boot camp, David wrote his co-workers a thank-you letter. The following was taken from his letter. "The greatest gift one can give to another is the gift of service. I do not know who said this but I've heard this saying before. The following is my gift to you; may I honor you and our fellow countrymen and women. I will earn the privilege to wear Eagle, Globe and Anchor for all those that cannot. With all the strength of my fellow Marines, we shall always provide you with the comforting feeling of safety that you have each day."
