A Final Salute to Marine Lance Cpl. Alejandro Yazzie

Posted By on Mon, Mar 1, 2010 at 2:39 PM

With all that's happening on the home front, it's easy to forget the sacrifices being made by our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.

National Public Radio did a recent story about a U.S. Marine offensive against the Taliban in the Helmand province. Lance Cpl. Alejandro Yazzie, a 23-year-old Navajo from Rock Point, Ariz., was killed in action by an enemy sniper during the operation on Feb. 16.

AzCentral reports that Yazzie was buried on Friday, Feb. 26.

We thank him for his service to his country. Our condolences to his family and loved ones.
