Gregory Allen Fronius was born on November 3, 1959, in Painesville, Lake County, Ohio. He died while serving with the 3rd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), in El Salvador, on March 31, 1987. On that date, pro-Cuban guerrillas of the Marxist group Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front launched a well-planned, early morning attack on the base camp at El Paraiso, El Salvador. Staff Sergeant, an advisor serving at that base camp, rallied the defense in action that resulted in many casualties among the attacking forces before he was himself mortally wounded.
SSgt Fronius is now buried in the Union Cemetery, Greensburg, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, USA.
