SGT Matt Sandri and LTC Mark Taylor gave their lives in service to our nation on March 20th, 2004. A year later, a ceremony was held at Fallujah Surgical, where a plaque was dedicated to honor the lives of these men.
Tomorrow, that plaque finds a new home as it will rededicated at a 1:00pm ceremony outside the Taylor/Sandri Medical Center at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
SGT Sandri was a combat medic with the 82nd Airborne Division serving as squad leader of his Evacuation Platoon. Sandri was known to provide exceptional care to his paratroopers and was willing to risk his own life to get to a fallen comrade to provide critical medical aid no matter the personal danger.
LTC Taylor, MD, of the 82nd Airborne Division was an Army physician and surgeon serving with a Forward Surgical Team in Fallujah, Iraq. Taylor was the first U.S. military doctor to be killed in combat since the Vietnam War.
Through a number of generous contributions, Dog Tag Brewing Foundation is humbled and honored to help celebrate the lives of these remarkable men.
The Foundation proudly supports the Matthew J. Sandri Scholarship Fund and Quilts of Honor in celebration of LTC Mark D. Taylor as recipients of Dog Tag Brewing Foundation's 2016 Legacy Grants.
