John's Story

John T. Bubeck was killed while supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom.  He died on Dec. 26, 2006, of wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle during combat operations Baghdad, Iraq on Christmas Day.  He was assigned to the 9th Engineer Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Schweinfurt, Germany. Sgt. Bubeck joined the Army in August 2002, went to Kuwait in August 2006, and Iraq in October 2006. John received the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. He was survived by his mother, Judith Bubeck, brother, Jim, and sister, Kathryn.

“Serving one’s country is a noble calling. John chose to be a soldier and faithfully and honorably served his country. John was a proud soldier,” Brig. Gen. Jesse R. Cross said.

The Travis Manion Foundation honored Sgt. John T. Bubeck through our Character Does Matter program on March 9, 2012, when we told his story to inspire 700 sophomores and juniors at Wissahickon High School in Ambler, Pa.
