At first glance, Humberto Sanchez looks like many young corporals serving in the Marines. 

He went through one of the military’s toughest basic training programs to become a “strategic warrior” and defend his country. Beside other service members in photos, he stood tall, sporting the Marines’ camouflage combat utility uniform. He’s been honored as a hero by people nationwide — from family and friends to strangers on the internet, even the president of the United States.

Sanchez, of Logansport, Indiana, was one of the 13 U.S. service members who died in the line of duty while supporting American evacuation efforts in Kabul, Afghanistan. Details of a public service honoring Sanchez in Indiana are to be announced, according to his family.He will be brought back home to Logansport on Sept. 12, according to Gundrum Funeral Home which is handling his services.
