US Marine Corporal Paul Zanowick

US Marine Corporal Paul W. Zanowick Jr., from Miamisburg, Ohio was killed in action in Helmand province, Afghanistan on 3rd June 2011. He came under enemy fire as he was helping to move a vehicle that had become stuck in rough terrain.

Cpl. Zanowick, serving with the 3rd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, had been in Afghanistan since April on his second tour of duty.

The 23-year-old Marine, a 2006 graduate of Miamisburg High School, leaves his wife Ryan Lynne, son Uriah, parents Paul and Nanette and sister Nicole.


  1. It was an honor to have the privilege to call you my friend and to serve with you!
    I will truly miss your presence and your smile my friend!
    Semper Fi!

  2. The fact that his vehicle broke down and got stuck and this young Marine paid the ultimate price in an enemy attack is so sad. The vehicles break down SO freqently...that's just unacceptable. I'll be praying for his wife and family.

  3. Please correct; it was not his vehicle that was stuck, he was assisting another Marine's vehicle that was stuck. He was conducting the recovery of the stuck vehicle when the section was attacked. It was due to terrain.
