Elizabeth Nicole Jacobson
Birth: Mar. 26, 1984, USA
Death: Sep. 28, 2005, Iraq

Air Force Airman 1st Class Elizabeth N. Jacobson of Riviera Beach, Fla., had her life planned for when she returned to Florida from Iraq, including a career in law enforcement and two sons she someday wanted to have. In an e-mail to friends and family, she wrote, "I want to die happy, and have a productive life. I hope nobody wishes I was never born. I hope my kids never tell me they wish I were like their friend's mom. I hope that I make money, but don't end up a workaholic or stuck up." Jacobson attended Palm Beach Gardens and Gold Coast high schools while living with her grandparents in Florida. She left to live with her mother in Madera, Calif., but later returned to Riviera Beach looking for work. Elizabeth loved Spongebob Squarepants, craved the smell of cut grass and wanted to have two children named Hunter and Austin. She hurt over a broken toe, hated angry people who argued politics and was proud to be an American although she sometimes wished she was Canadian. She became the first woman from Palm Beach County to die in the Iraq. Eliabeth was killed when an improvised explosive device detonated near her convoy vehicle near Camp Bucca, Iraq at age 21. She was the first female Airman killed in the line of duty in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the first Security Forces member killed in conflict since Vietnam.
