LCpl Jacob D. Hayes
Our Detachment's Namesake
The Detachment’s name honors Lance Corporal JACOB D. HAYES, who was born in Plano, Texas, 28 July, 1984 and also lived in Allen.
As a United States Marine, Jacob, an 0311 (rifleman), served as a SAW-gunner (M249 Squad Automatic Weapon) also known as a light machine gun in combat in Iraq with Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division. Before shipping out for Iraq he was also trained as an Emergency Medical Technician. After being injured in Iraq he began to have seizures as a result of those injuries, which prevented him from doing his job and was given a medical discharge. On 17 December 2008, Jacob passed away as a result of those injuries. He was buried at Ridgeview Memorial Park with full Military Honors.
The LCpl Jacob D. Hayes Detachment #1426, Department of Texas, Marine Corps League was chartered on 18 May, 2015 in Plano, Texas. The detachment is registered with the State of Texas and the federal government as a nonprofit organization.
