Whereas, he served our nation as an officer for nearly eighteen years with infantry units around the world; and
Whereas, Lieutenant Colonel Martin was a veteran of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf, Operation Restore Democracy in Haiti, and Operation Joint Endeavor in Bosnia; and
Whereas, his military service was marked by successful commands of infantry units and challenging operation officer positions; and
Whereas, he was a member of St. Luke's Lutheran Church; and
Whereas, he leaves to mourn his death Susan Hayes Martin, his wife of seventeen years, two daughters, his parents, one sister, and a host of relatives and friends; and
