SGT Dumont's Act of Heroism

Paul Jr. gave his life for our country. He was on his second tour of duty and was a newlywed when deployed. He volunteered to remain in Afghanistan during his R&R so that a fellow soldier could go home to see his newborn at the hospital. It was during this time that he was killed. He was a selfless, caring person who would go out of his way to ensure that others were safe and happy. Had the events taken place any differently, its likely that he would still be here. It is because of his selflessness and compassion for others that he was taken from us too soon. He will always be my hero.

My Hero

My brother, SGT. Paul E Dumont Jr, was the most thoughtful, caring, compassionate and hilarious person that I have ever known. He could make anyone laugh no matter how bad of a day they were having. We have a very large family, consisting of seven children, Im the second and he was the fourth, but the oldest of the boys. Ever since I can remember, he has been the staple in our family. He constantly wanted to have family time, play games together and for everyone to get along. He was the one that made sure all got together to hang out no matter how busy our lives were. Paul lived his life with no fear. He loved the outdoors, camping, his motorcycle and being around family and friends. He loved country music, particularly Zac Brown's chicken fried song, which was his last ring tone. He even set the song as his text tone, so that every text he received, we would all have to listen to the entire song! He did an amazing impression of Jim Carey as Ace Venture that would have us in tears from laughter. When he was five, my mother sewed him a miniture Army uniform that resembled our fathers and it was at this time we all knew he was destined to serve in the military. He was an artist and designed his tattoo of the American Flag on his back. He bled red, white, and blue and has always been a selfless and heroic person. There isnt a day that goes by that we dont cry over his absence but we go on each day attempting to "live the dream" for him. He is, and always will be our HERO.
Paul taught us to focus on whats really important in life and to live each day to the fullest.
