Adam is my nephew , and was a very nice young man, he died way too early and America owes him and all others who died in iraq much thanks for their sacrifices. We don't need to be in these wars, let these people live their caveman lives and bring our boys home. We need to protect our own borders, not theirs. Adam will be missed by many, Love forever, uncle jack & family— Jack Rosema

Last October, Rosema was deployed to Iraq, stopping first in Kuwait and then going to Camp Warhorse in Baqubah, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad.
On March 14, Rosema -- who was working at Camp Warhorse as a mechanic repairing Bradleys and Humvees -- volunteered to go on a routine mission to recover a vehicle that had been disabled during a battle.
