1st Lt. Scott J. FlemingPATROL BASE JAKER, Afghanistan - A memorial service honoring the life of 1st Lt. Scott J. Fleming took place at Patrol Base Jaker, Afghanistan, Sept. 25. He was remembered for his selflessness and leadership.

Fleming, a platoon commander with Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, died in support of combat operation in Helmand province, Afghanistan, Sept. 17.

“Anyone who was close to Lt. Fleming knew the Marines of his platoon came first, and it was easy to see how much he cared for them,” 2nd Lt. David Rooks said during the memorial. “Lt. Fleming was a Marine whose personality cannot be replaced and whose leadership will be missed.

During the service, Fleming's fellow Marines highlighted his passion for his work. Afghan leadership honored his sacrifice.

“Fleming's life was given for the freedom of Afghanistan and the people of Nawa, and this will never be forgotten by the people of Nawa,” said Nawa District governor Haji Abdul Manaf.

Fleming's Marines spoke of his positive influence on them.

“As a Marine officer and friend, he made a big impact on our lives,” said Sgt. Jorge Diaz, a squad leader with Kilo Company. “He died doing something he cared about.”
