Pfc. Lukas C. Hopper, 1/505th, Dies in Iraq

Posted on November 3, 2009. Filed under: Fallen Heroes, Walker Military Adventures |

On Friday, October 30th, just two weeks before rotating home, Private First Class Lukas C. Hopper was killed in a vehicle accident outside of Baghdad, Iraq. Pfc. Hopper was an airborne infantryman in Company D, 1/505th PIR, 3rd Bde, 82nd Airborne. He was from Merced, CA. and is survived by his parents, Robin and Yancy Hopper, and two sisters, Chantal and Celeste.

PFC. Hopper was in the 8th grade when 9/11 hit and it deeply moved him, and was a motivating factor in his enlisting in the Army. A highly motivated paratrooper, Pfc Hopper had volunteered for a unit transfer in order to go with another 82nd unit to Afghanistan after the holidays.

He was the recipient of the Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Oversees Service Ribbon, and Parachutist Badge.

Pray for his family and for his fellow paratroopers.
