SGT Jan Argonish

  Army Sergeant Jan Michael Argonish, a Soldier from the Pennsylvania National Guard, was killed on August 27, 2007 during an ambush in Afghanistan. He was 26 years old and a 10 year veteran of the PA Guard with two previous activations to his credit, serving on Active Duty during Operation Noble Eagle and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

  Jan was an amazing young man who loved his son Jakub, his family, his friends, and his fiancé Talia. Jan enjoyed going quad riding with his son, listening to country music, and classic cars. Jan is deeply missed by his family, friends and the countless others he touched over his lifetime

  To honor Jan's life, his comrades, friends and family have established the “Sergeant Jan Argonish Ride,” a non-profit organization that plans, organizes and runs an annual motorcycle benefit ride in Northern Lackawanna County. The event will combine many of the activities Jan enjoyed most in life while raising money in support of several noble causes that Jan would have endorsed.
