Please, Everyone Take A Moment To Thank Them
Troop Deaths Put a Heavy Toll On A&M
More than five years into America's war on terrorism, the routine at Texas A&M University — home of the Corps of Cadets — is well-established. When an Aggie is killed, the school's maroon flag is hoisted in mourning. Then it is lowered, folded and shipped to yet another grieving family.
That procedure was followed this week as the military confirmed Sean Edward Lyerly, Class of 1998, a former member of Company L-1, the Corps' Lone Star company, had died in combat in Iraq.
