A Photo of Caring and Compassion
Duty. Honor. Country. A view of another American Soldier aiding citizens far from home. This young child was rescued by a US Army Major from Fort Lewis Washington after she was fatally wounded in a car bomb blast in Mosul, Iraq on Monday, May 2005. The attack injured 15 Iraqis.

She stared and tears welled up.Complete story at Newsday.com
"I said 'Oh my God, it is one of our soldiers,'" Bieger, 34, said yesterday from her home outside the Fort Lewis, Wash., Army post. "Then I stared at the [name] patch. I made out the rank and then the last four letters of the name and I knew it was my husband."
