Marine Lance Cpl. Timothy R. Creager

Marine Lance Cpl. Timothy R. Creager, Age 21 of Millington, TN.
KIA July 1, 2004 in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom
He was assigned to 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Tim Creager was a man of great faith, “the kind of guy you want your daughter to marry and your sons to be like,” said Rusty Wheelington, a minister who knew him well. Creager felt God had called him to serve his country. “He said he always felt God’s presence with him,” said his mother, Kay Creager. “He always knew he was doing what he was supposed to be doing.”

Creager went to The Citadel on a full scholarship, but he left at the end of his sophomore year, saying he felt God was calling him to another destination. He enlisted with the Marines, fulfilling what friends said was a longtime dream. “It was what he wanted to do as long as I knew him,” Wheelington said.

Timothy R. Creager was a 2001 graduate of Craigmont High School. While at The Citadel he was active with the Baptist campus ministry and played lacrosse.

He had been in Iraq since December 2003.
