US Army officer 2nd Lieutenant Jered W. Ewy was one of two Oklahoma National Guardsmen killed in action on 29th July 2011 when a bomb detonated as they were on patrol in Paktia, Afghanistan.

2nd Lt. Ewy, age 33, was serving with the 1st Battalion, 279th Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.

Also killed in the same incident was Spc. Augustus Vicari


  1. another soldier that gave his life for our country that many people are ungrateful for. the next timme you want to talk trash about our military you remember these heroes and their families and the freedom that they unselfishly gave you without a blink of an eye. i am also a specialist in the oklahoma army national guard and my regards go to these families

  2. My little brother, Jered, gave everything for his country--even his life. He is the most selfless person I know. His beautiful smile that could light up a room and make you feel proud, his extreme optimism to feel he could make a difference, and his extreme love for his family, friends, and country will be missed. Death ends a life, but not a relationship.

  3. Damn skippy I will be there wearing my red,white, and blue. My husband is deployed with the 45th and I will not stand for the WBC to protest.
    Thank you Ewy for paying the ultimate sacrifice, I promise I will never forget you and you are a true HERO!

  4. To the Ewy Family, My son in law SPC Agustus Vicari served with your husband. My heart goes out to you and your husband will be in my prayers as well as the entire family to have the strength make it through this tragic time.
