We mourn life lost in Iraq

1 Comment
With American casualties in Iraq now more than 2,700 and growing, it's easy to see numbers and nothing more. But every casualty has a face, a name and a hometown.

Marine Chris Cosgrove, a 23-year-old native of Cedar Knolls, was killed on Sunday in Iraq by a suicide bomber at a checkpoint near Fallujah. Cosgrove had volunteered for that duty.

Such selflessness didn't surprise those who knew Cosgrove in Hanover, at Whippany Park High School or in the military.

"He would look for other things to do even after successfully completing his normal assignments," said a Marine spokesman.

We salute Cosgrove's service and commitment, and we join others in Morris County who are mourning his death.
