The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 have robbed the Mission area of six of its sons, brothers and fathers. The military support in Operation Iraqi Freedom from this area suffered from hostile after being struck by roadside bombs or improvised explosive devises (IEDs) or insurgent attacks.
Their deaths changed the course of life for their families and the community who welcomed them home before being laid to rest.
Immediately following their deaths, mourning parents said their sons served their country with honor and without reservation.
As the country remembers the lives lost in the terrorist attacks of a decade ago, the Progress Times would like to celebrate Mission’s soldiers and their families for their ultimate sacrifice.
