At first glance, Humberto Sanchez looks like many young corporals serving in the Marines.
He went through one of the military’s toughest basic training programs to become a strategic warrior and defend his country. Beside other service members in photos, he stood tall, sporting the Marines’ camouflage combat utility uniform. He’s been honored as a hero by people nationwide — from family and friends to strangers on the internet, even the president of the United States.
U.S. service members who died in the line of duty while supporting American evacuation efforts in Kabul, Afghanistan. Details of a public service honoring Sanchez in Indiana are to be announced, according to his family.He will be brought back home to Logansport on Sept. 12, according to Gundrum Funeral Home which is handling his services.His mother’s words represent a devastating duality — Sanchez was a hero, but he was also young. His commanding officers may have called him Cpl. Sanchez, but to loved ones, the 22-year-old was simply known as “Bert.” He played soccer and took art classes at Logansport High School just a few years ago. This undated photo released by the 1st Marine Division, Camp Pendleton/U.S. Marines shows Marine Corps Cpl. Humberto A. Sanchez, 22, of Logansport, Indiana. Eleven Marines, one Navy sailor and one Army soldier were among the dead, while 18 other U.S. service members were wounded in Thursday Aug. 26, bombing, which was blamed on Afghanistan’s offshoot of the Islamic State group.

In photos and videos online, rectangle framed glasses and a thin, dark mustache complete his mature, military look — but a dimpled smile shines light on his youth. He sings and laughs with friends and fellow Marines. In one moment, he’s pictured falling asleep on a fellow Marine’s shoulder. In another, he carries his older sister on his back, standing next to their two younger siblings.
His best friend from high school, Edgar Rodriguez Sanchez, says they had a Snapchat streak going just days before the attack in Kabul.
