Post Ceremony honors Iraq war casualties

Ceremony honors Iraq war casualties
Yuma Sun News, Yuma, Arizona
by Pam M. Smith, Staff Writer
Mar 18, 2005

In a solemn commemoration starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, (March 19th) names of U.S. servicemen and women killed since the beginning of U.S.-led invasion of Iraq will be read at Sanguinetti Memorial Park, 8th Avenue and 22nd Street.

Ed Snook, organizer of the Yuma event, said, "(Saturday) is the second anniversary of the war's beginning. Of the 36 service personnel listed, one of the very first was Lance Cpl. Michael Jason Williams, of Yuma, who was killed on March 23, 2003. On the same date, Pfc. Lori Ann Piestewa, of Tuba City, was the first Native American woman to die in the war.
"Sgt. Fernando Padilla-Ramirez of San Luis, Ariz., died on March 28, 2003."

The commemoration, which is being repeated around the nation, is open to the public.

Snook said the commemoration is sponsored by the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, a nonprofit, nonpartisan charity that provides need-based financial support to U.S. service personnel who have been wounded in the service of our nation's ongoing wars and their families.

"Donations will be accepted for the organization to continue its work," Snook said.

The list of names of those who have died is updated daily through icasualties.org from the Department of Defense. The Internet also has numbers of the wounded in action, not only for the United States military but the United Kingdom and other countries as well.

A breakdown by states lists the names, rank and dates of the deaths of service personnel.

Snook said additional information is available on the Web site: www.saluteheroes.org
