On the very day (August 25th) that I blogged that Cpl. Stephen Bixler was Connecticut’s most recent fatal casualty in Iraq († May 2006), Marine Cpl. Jordan C. Pierson of Milford was KIA in Anbar Province.

Cpl. Pierson (pictured at left, below)…

…was 21 year old.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
