Honoring Victor Dew
Victor Dew, born June 8, 1990, in Hayward, CA, fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming an infantryman in the United States Marine Corps, and was taken too quickly from us. While in high school, Victor earned his 1st degree Black Belt in Jiu- Jitsu, played football, and worked part time, graduating in 2008. He made the decision to enter the Marine Corps in September 2009 with his 2nd degree Black Belt, and was offered the opportunity of serving on the Marine Presidential Honor Guard. Victor chose to protect America’s freedom and borders and became an Anti- Tank Missileman responsible for employing the M220E4 TOW Weapon System and M98A1 Javelin Weapons System. During Victor’s first deployment to the Sangin Valley of Afghanistan, he and three brother Marines were killed when their MATV was struck by an improvised explosive device during Operation Enduring Freedom. Promoted posthumously to Lance Corporal, October 13, 2010, was the day Victor Dew became the first graduate of Granite Bay High School killed in action while serving his country. Victor highly valued education, and had the dream of becoming a history teacher after his time serving. For this reason, we thank Victor, and so many other Veterans for their service to our country, and choose to run for them so we may contribute to many Veteran students and Gold Star Family students who are able to receive their college education and graduate debt free.
