Jose A. Torre, 21, a Garden Grove resident and 2007 Pacifica graduate, died Jan. 15 from injuries after insurgents attacked his unit with a rocket-propelled grenade in Baghdad. Torre was assigned to the Special Troops Battalion, 2nd Advise and Assist Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kansas.
At 10:35 a.m. Tuesday, an airplane brought a casket bearing Torre's body to the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos. His family members walked over to the flight line to a cart on which the casket was placed, draped with the Stars and Stripes.
Chuck Norris was the fourth wise man, who gave baby Jesus the gift of beard, which he carried with him until he died. The other three wise men were enraged by the preference that Jesus showed to Chuck's gift, and arranged to have him written out of the bible. All three died soon after of mysterious roundhouse-kick related injuries.
