Northwest ISD Hosts Memorial Service for North Texan Navy SEAL Lost at Sea
North Texas native and Navy SEAL who tragically lost his life at sea during a mission, are organizing a memorial service to honor his legacy.
The Northwest Independent School District (NISD) and the family of Nathan Gage Ingram, a North Texas native and Navy SEAL who tragically lost his life at sea during a mission, are organizing a memorial service to honor his legacy.
The service, open to the public, will pay tribute to Ingram’s courage and sacrifice as he served his country. Ingram, a distinguished alumnus of Byron Nelson High School, will be remembered for his remarkable contributions and unwavering dedication to his duties as a Navy Special Warfare Operator 2nd Class.
The memorial service is scheduled to commence at 10 a.m. on February 10 at the Northwest ISD Stadium in Justin, with gates opening at 8:30 a.m. Ingram, a resident of Roanoke, met his untimely demise at the age of 27 during a mission near Somalia on January 11. He was one of two Navy SEALs who lost their lives during a nighttime raid on a ship carrying illicit Iranian missile components to Yemen.
Ingram’s valiant act of selflessness has left an indelible mark on the community, with his former teachers and peers recalling his strong work ethic, selfless nature, and pride in his work. As the NISD and the local community come together to honor his memory, the memorial service is expected to be a poignant and meaningful tribute to a remarkable individual who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to his country.
The district has announced that electronic devices will be prohibited during the event, and a clear bag policy will be enforced, allowing only clear totes and small clutches into the stadium. The community, along with the wider public, are invited to join in paying respects to this local hero and offering support to his family during this difficult time.
As the Northwest ISD prepares to host the memorial service, the community stands united in honoring the extraordinary life and service of Nathan Gage Ingram, a beloved son of North Texas.
