Staff Sgt. Jonathan D. Davis, 34, of Kayenta, Ariz., served as a motor transport chief with the Headquarters Battalion, 32nd Georgian Liaison Team, Regimental combat Team, 1st Marine Division. He was killed in combat on Friday.

Davis, a member of the Navajo Nation, enlisted in the Marines on Oct. 21, 1997.
His awards include the Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon, Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the NATO Medal-ISAF Afghanistan, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Global War on Terror Expeditionary Medal.
Davis' death prompted all flags at state offices in Arizona and on the Navajo Nation to be flown at half-staff on Feb. 26.
"The Navajo Nation mourns the loss of a warrior who gave his life defending freedom. We are saddened by the loss of our warrior and we offer our prayers to the family during this difficult time," Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly said Monday posting the news to Facebook.
According to The Daily Times in Farmington, N. Mex., Davis was known for helping take the Navajo community to two state high school basketball championships in the late 1990s. The paper also reported that Davis was the 14th Navajo member of the armed forces to lose their life during Operation Enduring Freedom.
