Serving central Arizona
On October 25, 2013 we lost a comrade, Marine and son. Cpl Jeffrey Aaron Burks, originally from Toledo Ohio, served in the USMC from 2001-2005 and was an Iraq veteran. After receiving his honorable discharge, Jeff was immediately put on 100% disability and moved to Casa Grande to live with his father. Jeff was a free spirit that had a driven passion for guitar, drums, singing and riding his motorcycle. Jeff leaves his dad and stepmom, Jeff and Cyndi; his mom and stepdad, Val and Tracey Ball; his siblings, Pam (Jeff), Winnie, Jeni, Greg (Nikki), Amy (Jason), Jessie (Scott) whom he loved so dearly.
Jeff was a member of Chandler Post 7401, but he did on occasion visit the Casa Grande Post 1677. As fellow veterans and VFW members, it is our duty to engage and welcome ALL veterans and seek out the veterans that need our support. When a grieving parent walks into your post and asks if you knew or met their son/daughter I hope the answer is yes.
Taps, No More Pain!
District 10 and all of our posts salute you Cpl Jeffrey Aaron Burks 8-9-83 to 10-25-2013
