Lcpl Gabriel Clevenger was born to Charles and Mary Clevenger of Picher Oklahoma on October 10, 1975. He enlisted in to the United States Marine Corps on March 30, 1999 where he served as a Machine gunner assigned to Weapons Platoon 3rd BN 5th Marines. On April 8, 2000 he was aboard an MV22 Osprey, call sign Nighthawk 72. The MV-22 Osprey Tilt rotor aircraft was conducting a training mission in support of Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL) when it went down at the Marana Regional Airport in Marana, Arizona. During the mission, Lcpl Clevenger and other Marines conducted Non-combatant Evacuation Operations (NEO) exercises as part of the Weapons and Tactics Instructor Course, with Marines embarking and disembarking the aircraft. The mission was conducted at night utilizing night vision goggles and forward looking infrared radar to enhance night operational capability. Lcpl Clevenger and 18 other Marines lost their lives that night when the aircraft descended at a high rate of speed due to a malfunction of flight systems. He gave his life as a Marine to help bring a vital aircraft into service for the Marine Corps which has gone on to save countless Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan.
