Alabama/Missouri loses a hero
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Specialist Fitzmorris’ loved ones:
A sniper’s bullet is behind one of the latest U.S. casualties in Iraq; a soldier with strong Alabama connections.
The Army says 26 year old Specialist Steven Fitzmorris was in a Baghdad neighborhood when a sniper shot him. Spec. Fitzmorris died about 3 hours later.
Fitzmorris grew up in Arab, Alabama, and was a student at Arab High School. He was remembered as a fun-loving, free-spirited person who always told his mother not to worry about him.
Funeral services were held for Spec. Fitzmorris Tuesday in Columbia, Missouri, where he lived with his wife and 2 children.
