"When he decided to join the Marines, it was a shock. He was a gentle man, not the type you'd think would go into the Marines. He was a quiet, gentle soul." Debbi Gardner, high school librarian Machado-Olmos, 20, of Spanish Fork, died with another Marine when the Humvee in which they were riding rolled during a patrol. The Marine Corps lance corporal was assigned to the 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, in Camp Lejeune, N.C.
