About Our School

The Gary Ivan Gordon Elementary School is located in Fort Bragg’s Linden Oaks housing area and serves approximately 600 students, pre kindergarten through fourth grade. The school opened for students on Jan. 5, 2009, and the dedication was Feb. 27, 2009.

The school is named in honor of Gary Ivan Gordon who was one of 18 U.S. Army Special Forces troops killed in a firefight with militiamen in Mogadishu, Somalia, in October 1993. He distinguished himself by actions above and beyond the call of duty, while serving as Sniper Team Leader, United States Army Special Operations Command with Task Force Ranger. Gary Gordon was born in Lincoln, Maine, in 1960. He graduated from Mattanawcook Academy in 1978 and joined the U.S. Army at age 17. Friends and colleagues remember Gary Gordon for his extraordinary heroism and as a gentle husband and father who filled notebooks with stories for his two young children. “His life and deeds are an example to all, and we wish to honor his memory through this memorialization,” said Dr. Emily Marsh, Fort Bragg Assistant Superintendent. “In so doing, children at Fort Bragg, for years to come, will have the opportunity to learn about this man of uncommon valor and emulate his courage and selflessness.”
