JIMENEZ

On May 12, 2007 an observation post comprised of 7 US Soldiers and 1 Iraqi were ambushed in the “Triangle of Death” in Iraq. Alexander Ramon Jimenez, 25, was captured, missing and his remains were found almost a year after the event. He was in Charlie Company/4-31/10th Mountain Division with YHC on his first deployment to Iraq in 2005. He had since moved to Delta Company and I had moved out back to the civilian world, not making this deployment with the Battalion. While I did not know SPC Jimenez very well, I knew him to be a respected Soldier and endearing friend. RIP Brother!

WHEN YOU’RE FEELING DOWN ABOUT YOUR DAY OR WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO, REMEMBER THERE ARE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE DIED, MANY VOLUNTARILY, TO SUPPORT THAT DREAM YOUR CHASING, THAT WALK IN THE PARK OR THE ABILITY TO MAKE THE DECISION YOU’RE FACING. SPC JIMENEZ AND THOSE LIKE HIM WOULD JUMP AT THE CHANCE TO HAVE ONE MORE MORNING WORKOUT, ONE MORE EXTRA REQUEST FROM A CHILD OR A SPOUSE OR ONE MORE TRIP AROUND THE SUN. #NEVER FORGET AND NEVER TAKE LIFE FOR GRANTED.
