Conrad A. Mora, 24
Mora was one of four soldiers killed July 24 at Qalat, Afghanistan. The men were fatally wounded when insurgents attacked their military vehicle with an improvised explosive device. In 2009 Mora received a commendation from Adm. Michael G. Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for dashing into a minefield to rescue Afghan civilians injured when a roadside bomb exploded.
