Ty J. Johnson, 28
In an e-mail to his twin brother, Johnson wrote about assisting in the Iraqi election. "I'm carrying 32,000 ballots in my Humvee. I'm going to be part of history." His widow told the Leaf-Chronicle of Tennessee that he had been due to leave the service four months before he was killed but was stop-lossed.
