Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Honoring our fallen. Squaw Peak in Arizona is to be re-named in honor of Pfc. Lori Piestewa. A Hopi serving in Iraq who died there.

Piestewa, a graduate of Tuba City High, was a soldier in the 507th Maintenance Company out of Fort Bliss, Texas, that was sent to Iraq. A portion of the 507th was ambushed March 23, and Piestewa was among eight soldiers killed in action in that ambush. She leaves behind a 4-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter.
