Sgt Edmund John Jeffers
Birth: Mar. 8, 1984
Death: Sep. 19, 2007, Iraq

Sgt. Edmund J. Jeffers of Daleville, Alabama graduated from Daleville High School in 2002. Although he was in the infantry, Jeffers used his pen as part of his offensive. What started out as an email he sent to his dad is now circulating through the Internet. In his letter titled "Hope Rides Alone," Sgt. Jeffers described his battle-weary experiences in Iraq. It also detailed his frustrations with what he said is a U.S. public more apt to criticize President Bush and the war on terror than support American men and women who are fighting to protect freedoms. He wrote that his battle for his rights and for his duty were in the midst of his own country, where so many fellow Americans had vowed to be united after the traumatic wake-up call of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He loved being an American and believed in what he was fighting for. He was more than willing to fight for this country and was a squad leader in whom many looked up to. He died in Taqqadum, Iraq, of injuries suffered from a non-combat related accident at age 23.
