A Woman To Fumble Her Husband’s Identification Tag

Posted May. 28, 2005 03:26,   


Emily Diruf from Lexington, Kentucky, grieves at the sight of her husband’s identification tag that shows his military number at Camp Pendleton in California on May 26. On the same day, a memorial ceremony for 420 soldiers of the 1st U.S Marine Corps who have been killed in Iraq took place. At least a total of 1,647 U.S. soldiers have been killed since March 2003 when the U.S. occupied Iraq.
