Peralez died Jan. 5 near Karbala while providing medical coverage for his team during convoy operations, when the vehicle he was riding in was struck by an improvised-explosive device. The Johnny J. Peralez Jr. School of Combat Medicine was formally dedicated to his memory. Peralez, from Kingsville, Texas, who died a month before his 26th birthday, was the first Soldier-medic to die during the division's current rotation to Iraq.
