Albert Bitton grew up in West Rogers Park. After high school he joined the Army as a medic with ambitions for a medical career. He was so suited to the role that his patients called him "Doc." He was deployed to Iraq in 2007; unfortunately he died during a raid in the following year. He was awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart posthumously.
