"...Say for their tomorrow, we gave our today."
January 20, 1970 - March 14, 2008

Sgt. 1st Class Collin J. Bowen, of Millersville, Md., was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 175th Infantry Regiment, Maryland Army National Guard, Towson, Md.

Bowen met his wife, Ursula, at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County when he was enrolled in a Spanish class she taught. They had one daughter, Gabriela.

He also had two daughters from a previous marriage - Erin and Katelyn, who live in Westminster, Md.
