A cadet from Iowa State University holds a placard memorializing 1st Lt. Jared Southworth, during the opening ceremony to the 3rd ROTC Brigade Gaspers-Cahill Ranger Challenge, March 16, at Camp Dodge, Iowa. Southworth and one of his soldiers were killed Feb. 8, 2009 by an improvised explosive device during a road clearing operation near Kabul, Afghanistan. The challenge was named for two of the brigade’s 11 alumni who died in combat. Both University of Nebraska graduates, 1st Lt. Kevin J. Gaspers and Capt. Joel E. Cahill, were killed in Iraq.
