Remembering the life and legacy of his best friend was a difficult task as so many experiences filled the short two years and seven months the young Marine knew Lance Cpl. Darin T. Settle. â??(Weâ??re) going to miss all the little things that mean so much,â? said Lance Cpl. Christopher E. Hoffa at a memorial service held here for Settle April 19, 2006. Settle, 23, of Henley, Mo., died April 14 from injuries sustained in a non-hostile motor vehicle accident in Al Anbar Province, Iraq. He was deployed here as a machine gunner with Transportation Support Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 15. Following remarks by Settleâ??s friends and coworkers, a 21-gun salute was fired to honor the fallen Marine who was serving his second tour of duty in Iraq. Settle is survived by his son, Wesley Arvin Gage Settle and his parents, James and Ruby Settle.
