SFC Robert Boniface

Sgt. Boniface enlisted in the Army in March 2006 and went straight into Special Forces training after completing both infantry basic training and advanced individual training at Fort Benning, Georgia. He was bestowed the coveted Green Beret on Jan. 14, 2010. He served as a Special Forces medical sergeant, “considered to be the finest first-response/trauma medical technicians in the world,” according to the Army’s recruitment website. Boniface and his unit, the U.S. Army’s 1st Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group, were in Afghanistan’s Logar Province, near the eastern border with Pakistan, supporting Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. He is survived by his wife, Rebekah Boniface, and daughter, Mia Elia Boniface, who live near the Eglin base in Niceville, Florida; and his parents, Elia and David Boniface, who reside in El Centro.
