Although he was only 12 years old, the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks profoundly changed Whittle
and eventually sent him down a path from which he never wavered. Whittle wanted nothing
more than to become a U.S. Marine. Three weeks after he arrived in Afghanistan for his first
combat tour, Whittle was dead, the victim of a land mine.

Memories of Joshua R. Whittle By Joshuas' Friends
It's hard saying good bye to someone that always greeted you with a warm hug and big
beautiful blue eyes. Joshua Whittle was an individual that always cared for others and put
other before himself. I believe he did not die in vain. I believe he is in a better place, I just wish
he was still in this world with us.

Josh was a good friend of mine during high school and he was a strong minded individual. He
never gave into peer pressure and always kept a positive outlook on life. He loved going to
hardcore shows and he was an over all free spirited friend. I will forever hold JOsh aka MD in
my memories and he will always share a place in my heart. I LOVE YOU MD!!! WE WILL BE
MISSING YOU
