Morris Marine killed in Iraq

2001 Whippany Park grad, Cedar Knolls resident, died Sunday

HANOVER TWP. -- A U.S. Marine from Morris County was killed Sunday in Iraq, several sources have confirmed.

Lance Cpl. Christopher Cosgrove, 23, of Cedar Knolls, died while on assignment with Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 25th Marines, sources said.

Cosgrove was a 2001 graduate Whippany Park High School, where he was a dedicated member of the football, track and lacrosse teams, Principal John Manning said today. The school will observe a moment of silence in Cosgrove's memory on Tuesday morning.

"He was a very team-oriented young man and was very fond of Whippany Park High School," Manning said. "He visited us often."

Manning said Cosgrove stopped by to visit with teachers and staff at the high school before he shipped out for Iraq last spring.

Our hearts break for this young man lost at the same time that our hearts soar with pride over his courage, pride and selflessness.
Rest in Peace- - there are many who may not believe in the actions taken in Iraq but support every last one of you serving there. May the rest come home soon.
Thank you - Thank you - Thank you
