"Staff Sgt. David Allen Wyatt, one of four Marines killed Thursday in Chattanooga, Tenn., during an attack on two military facilities there.
Wyatt was a 1998 graduate of Russellville High School, where he played football, ran track and played tuba in the band — he even had the opportunity to play the tuba during President Bill Clinton's inauguration. He also was a member of the Boy Scouts of America and earned that organization's prestigious Eagle Scout rank.
At the time of the attack, Wyatt lived in Chattanooga with his wife, Lorri, and their two children. According to Wyatt's mother, Deborah Wyatt Boen, he was stationed at the Marine Corps Reserve Center in Chattanooga, where he was in charge of military funerals and reserve artillery training.
A Marine for more than a decade, Boen said her son intended to make a career of his military service. He served deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan."
