My Neighbor dies in Iraq

A Glassboro family is mourning Airman 1st Class Carl Ware Jr., whose death in Iraq marks the 44th casualty for New Jersey. Airman Ware was only 22. Courier Post:
Ware, who went to Iraq just over a month ago, helped provide security at Camp Bucca, a prison facility in southern Iraq.

The details on the tragedy are thin at this point. Aparently, this was a non-combat related incident. Carl Ware's body should arrive at McGuire Airforce Base in Burlington County later today.

His daughter Caitlyn (see pic) turns one later this month.

A tragedy indeed. Her poor little girl will never get to really know her father.

I am so sorry. She's such a cutie. As The Phoenix said - what a tragedy that she will never know her Dad.

I'm so sorry. I'll save the rant.

I've seen this picture on your blog and on BlueJersey, and every time I see it, I try not to cry.

It's not easy not to cry.

Always more sad when you can put a face to a statistic. What's even worse is there are more than 2500 others just from our military alone. Too me tragedies for me to comprehend.
