Christopher B. Fishbeck, 24
Fishbeck was among five soldiers killed June 6 in a rocket attack in Baghdad. The attack, the deadliest this year against U.S. forces in Iraq, underscored the dangers American troops still face as they prepare to withdraw by the end of 2011. Although military officials listed his hometown as Victorville, his family said he was from Buena Park.
