At Last, Closure
The remains of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin [above], of Batavia [near Cincinatti], Ohio, Missing In Action in Iraq since April 9, 2004, were recently recovered in northwest Baghdad and have been identified. We thank the local Iraqis who provided the tips for allowing his family, and our country, to find some closure.
Funeral arrangements in Cincinatti are still tentative, but will definitely be publicized in local media. Our readers can go to Yahoo! News and search on "Maupin," then sort by date.
Once arrangements are finalized, please spread the word. Thank you.
