Lance Corporal Holly A. Charette, 21, Cranston, R.I.
Charette was killed by a suicide bomber June 23, 2005, shortly after being deployed to Anbar province. High school friends remembered her as a lively cheerleader and field-hockey player. She lost a cousin, Mark Charette, in the 9/11 attacks and said those attacks helped spur her to join the Marines. Estranged from her father for several years, she contacted him and met with him shortly before her deployment. She also left a fiance, a serviceman also deployed in Iraq.
