Remembering Who Was Lost

Posted on 08. Nov, 2009 by in Uncategorized

In combat, by friendly fire, or a stress-related tragedy at home we cannot afford to loose any more soldiers to wars we cannot win, weather those wars are real or in the minds of our physically and emotionally overtaxed men and women serving at home and abroad.  While we remember our Veterans this week, let us not forget the soldiers who died last week in the senseless rampage at Fort Hood:

  • Lt. Col. Juanita Warman, 55, physician’s assistant and was a member of a medical Reserve unit from Pittsburgh, PA
  • Maj. L. Eduardo Caraveo, 52, a licensed clinical psychologist and part of the 467th Combat Stress Control Detachment out of Madison, Wis.;
  • Capt. Russell Seager, 51, a nurse practitioner in the 467th from Racine, Wis.;
  • Sgt. Amy Krueger, 29, of Kiel, Wis., another member of the 467th, who joined the Army shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks;  
  • Capt. John Gaffaney, 56, of the Serra Mesa area of San Diego, who was part of a Reserve combat stress unit.
  • Michael G. Cahill, 62, a retired National Guardsman;
  • Specialist Frederick Greene, 29, of Mountain City, Tenn;
  • Staff Sgt. Justin M. DeCrow, 32, of Evans, Ga.;
