In Memoriam

The Department of Defense announced the death of the following New Jersey Army National Guard soldiers supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom:

Sgt. Frank T. Carvill, 51, of Carlstadt
Spc. Christopher M. Duffy, 26, of Brick

Sgt. Carvill and Spc. Duffy died in Baghdad, Iraq, on June 4, 2004, when individuals using improvised explosive devices and rocket-propelled grenades attacked their convoy.

Sgt. Humberto F. Timoteo, 25, of Newark
Spc. Ryan E. Doltz, 26, of Mine Hill

Sgt. Timoteo and Spc. Doltz died on June 5, 2004 in Baghdad, Iraq, when their vehicle hit an improvised explosive device.

All four of these soldiers were assigned to the New Jersey Army National Guard’s 3rd Battalion, 112th Field Artillery, in Lawrenceville.

These American soldiers answered our nation’s call to secure freedom for the oppressed people of Iraq. In doing so, they paid the ultimate price so that others may have what we so proudly enjoy.

Please remember these New Jersey Army National Guard soldiers and their families in your thoughts and in your prayers.
