LCpl Tamario Demetrius Burkett
Birth: Dec. 4, 1981
Buffalo
Erie County
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 23, 2003, Iraq

Marine Pfc Burkett was assigned to 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He was killed in action after his unit came under attack while securing a bridge. Tamario was the oldest of seven children - a poet, an artist and a big brother. His letters home included special notes for each of his younger siblings, ages 1 to 18. Katrina, 15, should stay away from boys and 18-year-old Raymond should focus on school, he wrote. As he prepared for combat, Tamario didn't worry about his own safety, said his mom. He said, 'Ma, God is going to forgive me if I kill someone over there?' His mother said, 'Yes, you're doing what you have to do.'"
