Aaron C. Elandt
Port Hope, Mich.

Aaron C. Elandt was the youngest of four siblings, and all followed their father into the Army.
Paul Elandt, 58, who served during Vietnam, said he encouraged his children to travel and broaden their horizons.
(Their mother) Linda said, `I can't stand another one in the military.' I told them get out of Huron County and see a bit of the world, Paul Elandt said.
Aaron Elandt, 23, of Port Hope, Mich., died May 30 when his Humvee hit a land mine near Musayyib, Iraq. He had joined the military in 2000 after high school.
My favorite word for him was irreverent, Linda Elandt said. He did his own thing.
Harbor Beach Community Schools Superintendent Ron Kraft called Elandt a courageous young man dedicated to serving his country.
He was a solid young man as a student and as a citizen, Kraft said.
