Oregon Legislature Honors Newport High Grad, Fallen Marine Lance Corporal Nathan Windsor

From Rep. David Gomberg

SALEM—This week the Oregon Legislature passed Senate Concurrent Resolution 12, honoring United States Marine Corps Lance Corporal Nathan Windsor for his service to his country. Windsor was born 1986, in Oregon City, and graduated from Newport High School in 2005.

Lance Corporal Windsor was killed in action while on patrol west of Fallujah, Iraq in 2007.

Lance Corporal Windsor proudly served as an infantryman assigned to 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, in Twentynine Palms, California. His unit deployed to Iraq in January 2007. Lance Corporal Windsor was the point-man (lead) of the 1st squad for his platoon and was known by his platoon sergeant to have good combat instincts.

“While I never had the opportunity to meet Nathan, he was a remarkable young man,” said State Rep. David Gomberg, whose district includes Newport. “We are still saddened by his death yet deeply proud of his service and the honor of his sacrifice. We, the members of the Seventy-eighth Legislative Assembly, recognize and honor United States Marine Lance Corporal Nathan Windsor for his service to his country,” he added.

Windsor died from a gunshot wound while investigating a known insurgent stronghold in a small Iraqi town on March 11, 2007. Just prior to his death, Windsor gave warning of an impending ambush, thus ensuring that he was the only American casualty that day.
