So, with the sadness that this nation feels over the deaths of someone else's sons, I bring you the news of the following loss:
Sgt. 1st Class James D. Doster, 37, died in Baghdad, Iraq Sept. 29 when insurgents attacked his unit using an Improvised Explosive Devise and small arms fire.
Doster was an infantryman assigned to 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division. His home of record is Pine Bluff, Ark.
He entered the Army in May 1990 and began serving with the 1st Inf. Div. in February 2006. This was his first deployment in support of the Global War on Terrorism.
May SGT Doster rest in peace in the loving arms of his Creator, and may God grant strength to his family and friends.
I will continue posting on the battalion until they they're all home. I pray it will be one heck of a party.
