Another Fort Lewis soldier was killed in Iraq this month, bringing the total of sixteen soldiers from the Tacoma fort killed this month. Spc. Matthew P. LaForest of Austin, Texas died during small arms enemy fire in Taji, Iraq. He was a soldier in C Company, 4th Battalion, 9th Infantry, 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division --- a Stryker combat team.

So far this month, there have been 104 American casualties, 3 United Kingdom, and 3 of other countries.

But it never hurts as much as when it is this close to home.
