|Let the memory of Eric be with us forever|
Marine PFC Currier was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He was killed while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. Eric lived in Methuen, Massachusetts until the eighth grade at which time he moved to Londonderry, New Hampshire with his mother. His summers were spent on Plum Island where he and his grandfather hunted, fished and did everything together. He graduated from Londonderry High School's Adult Education Program in 2006 and fulfilled his dream of being a Marine when he enlisted in March 2009. The following January he was deployed to Afghanistan leaving behind his wife, Kaila. Eric had received the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal. He believed in the mission over there and would say how much these people needed us. Eric enjoyed fishing on his grandfather's boat, swimming, and basketball. He was a friendly and likeable young man who was thought highly of in his home town.
Have a suggestion for us?
