About Deputy Kurt B. Wyman
On June 7, 2011 Deputy Kurt B. Wyman of the Oneida County Sheriff's Office in Oriskany, N.Y., was shot and killed while on duty at a domestic dispute. Kurt began his career in law enforcement when he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. He went on to serve, with distinction, in Iraq from September 2008 to April 2009.
While in Iraq, Kurt earned several honors, including the Iraqi Campaign Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Armed Forces Reserve Medal and the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal. In October 2007, Kurt joined the Oneida County Sheriff's Office and was assigned to road patrol. During his time as a Deputy Sheriff, Kurt continually demonstrated his commitment to law enforcement, earning the Grand Cordon Medal twice and being named the 2010 Rookie of the Year. When Kurt was killed he was 24 years old. Kurt leaves behind his wife Lauren Wyman and two children.
