Iraqi Army Lt. Col. Abbas Jabbar Abbas Al Amari, commanding officer of the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Brigade, 7th Iraqi Army Division, pays his respects to Staff Sgt. Jason C. Ramseyer, who was killed April 20, 2006 in a roadside blast in Haditha, Iraq. Marines and sailors from the Hawaii-based battalion held a memorial for him April 23, 2006, at their base at Haditha, Iraq. Ramseyer served as the platoon commander for the battalion’s Forward Command Post, also known as the “Jump CP.” His job often required him to travel on Al Anbar’s dangerous roads to provide security for Iraqis and other Marines. The 28-year-old was remembered as a committed leader and devout family man by those who served with him. Ramseyer, who served with the battalion in Afghanistan last year, is survived by his wife, Amanda and his three children, Caleb, Cadence and Riley. Photo by: Sgt. Roe F. Seigle
