Nathaniel Schultz got some practice for his career as a boy, playing Batman and Robin with his sister Grace Maguire.

Maguire said “he was my Marine” and always looked out for her when they were kids. Schultz also worked at the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch, helping troubled young people. Indeed, helping people is why he became a Marine.

“To fight for righteous, individual freedom for myself and all children of God no matter where they were raised,” he wrote on a questionnaire asking why he signed up.

“He was the one who wanted to fix everything. He wanted to help everybody,” said another sister, Deanna Maguire.

Schultz, 19, of Safety Harbor, Fla., died at Camp Dwyer, Afghanistan, Aug. 21. He was assigned to Camp Lejeune. He graduated from Countryside High School in Clearwater, Fla., in 2009 and enlisted soon after.

Deanna Maguire said Schultz played guitar and liked to skateboard. He also loved being outdoors — hiking, hunting, fishing or hanging at the beach.

Schultz, the youngest of his siblings, was part of a close-knit family, Deanna Maguire said.

“He was the life link because of his personality,” she said. “He held us all together.”
