Lance Corporal Angel Rosa, 21, South Portland, Maine
Angel Rosa brought a tough persona to the soccer pitch at South Portland High School. But off the field, Rosa was a caring, charismatic young man. "Sports were one of the things that kept Angel engaged with the academic process," Jon Shardlow, his former coach, said. "I'm guessing he was able to find a similar environment and similar structure in the military, and I'm sure it served him very well." Rosa died March 13, 2007, from wounds received during combat.
