In Remembrance, Jason S. Cruz

A neighbor's son who served in Iraq came home today... in a plain box and the American flag draped over it. He was a native son of Guam and a proud U.S. citizen-- a young soldier who served his country with honor. Maria, his mother, cried. She cried and cried and cried. He was only 21 years old.

Jason was attending the University of Guam and planned to major in business administration, when a thought entered his head... it was his duty to serve his country. He enlisted in the Army and provided for his mother and siblings by sending money home every pay day.

With his dream of a promised college fund from the military, after college, Jason planned to open his own car detailing business. A carefree, young man, Jason had a quick smile and a big heart. The oldest of three, he was the man of the house since his father passed away years ago due to a heart attack.

This post is dedicated to Jason S. Cruz, a native son of Guam, who died in Iraq.

A son who loved his family and cared for them.
A man who loved his country and died for it.
A soul whose faith sustained him in his hour of need.
R.I.P. my friend. You will be missed.

That is sad, indeed.

As each one is.

Does anyone know how many soldiers from Guam have died or been injured?

I was at a dinner in Hawaii last Christmas with 14 other people, I was visiting a girfriend in Hawaii. We both grew up on Guam and the dinner was a send off. 11 men/women were headed for Iraq. One guy had 2 kids, he said over 460 soliders will leave Guam/ have left Guam for Iraq. That's 0.3% of our population!
