KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (Mar. 6, 2011) – 'Raider' Brigade mourns the loss of one of our own, who was killed March 3, in Kandahar City, when his squad struck an improvised explosive device while conducting a combat foot patrol.

Sgt. Jason Michael Weaver., a 22-year-old native of Anahiem, Calif., was assigned to 170th Military Police Company, 504th Military Police Battalion, 42nd Military Police Brigade, currently attached to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.

“Jason epitomized the qualities that all soldiers seek to possess and Army leaders desire in their subordinates,” said Capt. Ethan A. Olberding, commander, Company D, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division. “He was intelligent, a solid communicator and physically fit.”

Weaver enlisted in the Army as a military police officer on Jan. 29, 2008. He attended One Station Unit Training at Fort Leonard Wood, Miss., and upon completion of his training, reported to Joint Base Lewis – McChord, Wash., where he was assigned to 170th Military Police Company, 504th Military Police Battalion, 42nd Military Police Brigade.
Weaver deployed to Afghanistan with the 170th MP Company, 504th MP BN ‘Dragon fighters' in June, 2010.

“Jason was more than a friend; he was family, a brother and a hero,” said Spc. Brian Gabel, military police officer, assigned to assigned to 170th Military Police Company, 504th Military Police Battalion, 42nd Military Police Brigade, currently attached to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.

“Jason represented the first line of defense for his patrol by volunteering to be the point man during his patrols,” said Olberding. “He set the tone on mission through his understanding of the importance of building and maintaining positive relationships with local villagers.”

“Jason took the responsibility of being the ‘point man' for our foot-patrols,” said Gabel. “He knew it was a dangerous job, but that's the kind of guy he was; the kind who wanted to lead the way for his team and be there to protect them if they were in danger.”

“Jason's dedication to duty far surpassed those identified in Army standards,” said Olberding. “He simply set an example for others to follow, through selfless service and devotion to mission accomplishment. We will remember Sgt. Weaver for these qualities as we strive to match those exemplified by him.”

Weaver is survived by his mother, Patricia Ann Weaver, and his father, Kevin Lee Weaver.

A memorial in Sgt. Jason Michael Weaver's honor was held in Afghanistan, March 6, 2011.
