Death: Aug. 6, 2007
Diyala, Iraq

Cpl. Kareem R. Khan, 20, of Manahawkin, N.J.; was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team), Fort Lewis, Wash.; died Aug. 6 in Baqubah, Iraq, of wounds sustained from an improvised explosive device. Also killed were Staff Sgt. Jacob M. Thompson, Sgt. Nicholas A. Gummersall and Cpl. Juan M. Alcantara. Kareem graduated from Southern Regional High School and enrolled in the district's Air Force Junior ROTC program. During his one year in the program, he proved himself to be a solid student and citizen. He also wanted to show that not every Muslim was a fanatic and that some would risk their lives for America. He was sent to Iraq in July 2006, after spending a year at Fort Lewis near Tacoma, Washington. At the end of his tour, Kareem was considering re-enlisting or going to medical school. His awards and decorations include the Purple Heart and Army Commendation Medal. His family received a purple heart, a bronze star, and a good conduct medal he received during his tour of duty.
