The remains of PVT Byron Fouty and SPC Alex Jimenez have been recovered in Iraq. Their checkpoint was ambushed on 12 May 2007. Four of their fellow soldiers (SFC James D. Connell Jr., PFC Daniel Courneya, PFC Christopher E. Murphy, and SGT Anthony Schober) were killed in the attack, and PFC Joseph Anzack Jr. went missing along with PVT Fouty and SPC Jimenez. The body of PFC Anzack was found in the Euphrates River eleven days later.
In June of 2007, a terror group released a video claiming to have killed PVT Fouty and SPC Jimenez.
My thoughts and prayers are with these soldiers and their families.
Requiescat in pace.
