 Killed in Baghdad, Iraq, when their vehicle struck an improvised explosive device.

First Lieutenant Ryan Jones, 23, Westminster, Mass.

Eleven days before he died, Jones described his mission -- finding and disarming roadside bombs -- in a letter to members of the Junior ROTC program at the Montachusett Regional Vocational Technical School, where he graduated in 2001. "There has been a few times the IEDs have found us before we found them," Jones wrote. "But don't worry, our trucks have enough armor on them to survive most blasts." Jones was killed by an IED on May 2, 2007.
