Soldiers gather to mourn fallen "hero"

A soldier pauses to mourn the loss of Army Sgt. Dustin D. Laird at Camp Taqqadum's Mainside Chapel August 8, 2006. Laird, a crane operator with 913th Engineer Company, 46th Engineer Combat Battalion, was killed August 2, 2006, while conducting combat operations in the city of Fallujah. The Union City, Tenn., native was remembered as a courageous and often comedic individual, who raised the morale within his unit. (Official USMC photo by: Lance Cpl. Geoffrey P.
