In honor of Sgt Germaine Debro, Army National Guard - Served in Operation Iraqi Freedom III & IV
Hometown: Omaba, NE
(Submitted October 8, 2008 by N.G.)

Sgt. Germaine L. Debro, 33 of Omaha. Nebraska, died in Balad, Iraq of injuries suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle during combat operations. He was assigned to the Army National Guard 1st Squadron, 167th Cavalry Regiment from Fremont, Nebraska.  I never had the chance to meet Sgt. Debro but I know who he is through his death. His platoon ran convoys with us in Iraq. His convoy was hit by an IED just ahead of ours that night. There is a lot more I would like to say but its too hard to put into words. Only a fellow veteran would understand.
