First Black West Point Commander Dies In Iraq
Sept. 27, 2006 – The nation is mourning the death of Lt Emily Perez, 23, the first Black woman to serve as corps commander sergeant major at West Point. Perez, who graduated in the top 10 percent of her class, out-ran many men, directed a gospel choir, read the Bible every day. She also headed a weekly convoy as it rolled down treacherous roads, pocked with bombs and bullets near Najaf, Iraq. As platoon leader, she insisted on leading her troops from the front. She died Sept. 12 when a bomb detonated near her Humvee in Kifl, south of Baghdad. Shortly before shipping out to Iraq with the 204th Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, she flew cross-country to be a bone marrow donor for a stranger who was a match. She was the 64th woman from the U.S. military to be killed in Iraq or Afghanistan.

RIP Emily.

This just anger me again about John Kerry
Emily chose to be apart of West Point.

There are minorities out there being persuaded more than they should to fight and die for their country and John Kerry had a chance to bring that up and just sat on it.

RIP Emily.


Fucking, idiot, greedy ass Bush... :fiery:

This may seem strange but I feel like I knew her, much like the way I feel about the sisters. We are all family and share the times of Happiness and Mourning. This young sister was a perfect example of what we can achieve and how much we all have to lose just by living in the dangerous climate of today RIP My Sister, We are all Proud of you.
