Max Soviak, a Navy hospital corpsman, hailed from Berlin Heights, Ohio, and graduated from Edison High School in Milan in 2017, the Sandusky Register reported.
A woman who identified herself as Soviak’s older sister, and who goes by Marilyn Soviak on Instagram, penned a heartbreaking post Friday that confirmed her brother’s death.
“I’ve never been one for politics and i’m not going to start now. What I will say is that my beautiful, intelligent, beat-to-the-sound of his own drum, annoying, charming baby brother was killed yesterday helping to save lives,” the sister wrote.
“he was a f–king medic. there to help people. and now he is gone and my family will never be the same. there is a large Maxton sized hole that will never be filled,” she wrote alongside a slideshow of images showing the two as children.
“he was just a kid. we are sending kids over there to die. kids with families that now have holes just like ours.”
His family later released a statement that said he was a “wonderful son who loved his family, his community, and was proud to serve in the US Navy.”
“He was excited about the opportunities the Navy would offer him and planned to make the Navy a career,” the statement said.
“We are incredibly proud of his service to our country… Words cannot express how heartbroken we are with this news and we will miss Max tremendously.”
While in high school, Soviak was on the honor roll and football team, the outlet reported.
“Max was a good student who was active in sports and other activities throughout his school career. He was well respected and liked by everyone who knew him,” the school said in a statement, adding that news of his death has brought “great sorrow.”
Soviak also previously worked as a lifeguard and a maintenance technician, the outlet reported.
At Lombarddesign.com, all unit PT shirt prices are set at flat rates and we will maintain stock of all your current, official shirts to the best of our abilities. In order to have your unit PT shirt listed, you must submit the design or concept along with the set up fee. You may submit the design through chat, email, or text message.
Company/Battery/Platoon/Section/Team setup and listing is a one-time fee of between $90-$350 (Depending on the amount of ink colors used).**
**Platoon/Section/Team shirts are limited to one color ink only. The same color ink must be used on the entire shirt e.g. black ink on a coyote brown shirt or white ink on a black shirt.
Without special approval, an increase in the per shirt price for your design, and an increase of the setup fee, all shirts are restricted to a maximum of two print locations (which in most scenarios would exclude sleeve prints.)
To submit and then to complete the listing of a new PT shirt design one must have approval from unit hierarchy. Before Lombard Design stocks a new shirt design, it must receive an email from personnel authorized to speak for said hierarchy with approval of the new design and listing.
Other restrictions may apply.
