The Lance Corporal Jordan C. Haerter Veterans' Memorial Bridge

May 7, 2008   State of New York   Senate Assembly

"The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assembly do enact as follows: To recognize the ultimate sacrifice Joredan Haerter paid in serving his country and to honor all the veterans of Sag Harbor, North Haven, and Noyac who have served our nation."

On April 22nd, 2008 at 7:36 in the morning Marine Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter was manning a guard post along with Corporal Jonathan Yale at the entrance to Joint Security Station Nassar in Ramadi, Iraq. Without warning, a truck loaded with 2000 lbs of high explosives began racing towards them through a serpentine of concrete Jersey barriers in an attempt to breach the security corridor and to kill the 33 Marines and 20 Iraqi police housed in the compound. In a selfless act of valor and courage, the two brave marines stood rock solid and unwavering, opening fire on the suicide bomber and killing him instantly. The truck continued forward briefly and exploded, devastating the surrounding area, taking the lives of Haerter and Yale, and injuring 2 other marines and numerous Iraqi police and citizens but ultimately saving the lives of the other men.

For his "extraordinary heroism" that day Lance Corporal Haerter was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross.

Jordan Christian Haerter, a native of Sag Harbor, was 19 years old when he perished.
