Yet something about Belbeck, an infantry soldier who had been in the Army for nearly four years, caught her attention enough for her to make the first move.
From the time she was a bubbly toddler growing up in Miami, Specialist Jessica Sarandrea loved the beach. She would beg her parents to take her and her two younger brothers to the water on weekends.
As a teenager, Sarandrea adopted South Beach as one of her favorite backdrops for taking photos. She would catch a ride down to the water, often with her mother, Xiomara Mansilla Derqui, and practice posing in the surf, arms on hips, chin jutting out, defiance in her eyes. The headstone marking the grave of Lt. Francis Toner IV is a second edition. The change was not a correction to the record.
It was something else: a rewording required after the Navy upgraded his valor medal — to Silver Star from Bronze Star — to honor more fully the split-second decision Toner made to sacrifice his own life and allow a friend and fellow officer to live.
Murder At Stacy's Cove Marina by Marti Brown
Toner, 26, was fatally shot in March , a victim of an attack by an Afghan National Army soldier that killed a peer, Lt. Florence B. Choe, and wounded Cmdr. Kim M. The retelling of his death contains many of the sorrows of the American side of the Afghan war — the courage and commitment of an idealistic young officer carried away by the dark currents and disappointments that followed Pentagon overreach. Toner died by fratricide, killed by one of the Afghan soldiers he was sent to help.

He was known as the Senator, an officer who shook hands with everyone he met, asked thoughtful questions, listened intently to others, regardless of rank.
He was a passenger, returning to Baghdad after checking on a National Guard combat unit. He was due home to Stafford, Va.
He planned to return to Virginia, continue working for the Guard and, together with his wife, Maria, raise his two young sons to manhood. Instead, Col.
Paul Kelly was laid to rest in two separate plots in Section 60 at Arlington National Cemetery — one that is his alone; the other, a shared grave of commingled body parts belonging to the dozen soldiers who were on the Black Hawk when insurgents shot it out of the sky.
Kelly has been gone now for more than 11 years, but his family and friends say his spirit, essence and warmth remain with them on Earth. Over the weekend, giant, automated diamond-tipped saws ran continuously, cutting six-toton blocks of Danby marble into gleaming white slabs. Now, on Monday, Robert McCallum clocked in at 6 a. The company makes 3, to 4, headstones a year for Arlington — a steady line of business in a town that has seen its stonework fortunes decline over time. His father worked here, too, in maintenance and as a forklift operator.
In , McCallum temporarily stepped away when he was called to active duty with Charlie Company, th Engineer Battalion, to support the invasion of Iraq. He spent a year in Kuwait and Iraq as a construction supervisor, paving roads and building wash racks so troops could clean the desert sand off their gear. Please upgrade your browser.
