The cards arrived in Afghanistan right around the day that Spc. Christopher Coffland would have turned 44. "It was a tough time," said his Army company mate, Jason Frantom, speaking almost a year later to the Roland Park Elementary students who sent the greeting of comfort and thanks after Coffland was killed. The men in Coffland's Army company had not had time to grieve him properly. He was a unique spirit who had played professional football in Finland, hunted crocodiles while living with a Pygmy tribe in Africa and volunteered for the Army Reserves a month before reaching the cutoff age of 42. Then, a few weeks into their tour, the fascinating character from Baltimore was gone, killed by a roadside bomb on Nov. 13, 2009.

Toccara Green lingered until after midnight that last Sunday in July, eating ribs and ice cream cake and mingling cheerfully with nearly 90 friends and relatives gathered at a backyard barbecue in her honor. She posed for pictures with new baby cousins and older relatives she had not seen for years. She prayed with members of her church. The next Sunday, her two-week leave over, the 23-year-old Rosedale woman and Army specialist returned to Iraq for the final four months of her second tour of duty.

Resplendent in a black tuxedo instead of the desert camouflage he wears in Iraq, Army Spc. Adrian Dupree married Mieasha Pompey before 120 guests last night, the eighth day of his two-week vacation from war. As the bride shook with emotion, the Rev. St. George Crosse performed the ceremony, ending with a prayer as the young couple held each other in a long embrace. Two national television networks and a newspaper photographer recorded the scene. "Go back [to Iraq] knowing that friends and others will be looking out for you, and God will be looking out for you. I talked to Adrian, and he said, `It's my duty to be there,' " Crosse told the crowd at McKenzie's Restaurant, near the Southwest Baltimore neighborhood of Yale Heights, where the couple grew up. Dupree, a reservist in the 352nd Civil Affairs Command based in Riverdale in Prince George's County, was on the first planeload of troops sent home from Iraq for two weeks of rest and relaxation in the midst of their year of service.

CLYDE, N.C. - The old man looks down at the grave, so fresh it has no marker and the squares of sod have not yet grown together. He has come to visit his only grandson. Rayburn Seeley last set foot on this spot Jan. 22, the day Army Spc. Jeremy S. Seeley was buried with military honors outside his hometown at age 28. Now the grandfather gives an impromptu salute, standing motionless against a backdrop of clouds streaming past the Blue Ridge Mountains. "We fought in different wars," said the proud veteran of World War II, "but we was still comrades in arms."

ARLINGTON, Va. - Spc. Jason C. Ford's official U.S. Army photograph shows the face of a quite serious young man fixed on a path that would take him from training in Georgia to a unit in Germany, then to Kuwait and Iraq. The pursuit soon led to Arlington National Cemetery, Section 60, Gravesite 7971. He had grown up in Prince George's County, embodying a far more lighthearted and generous spirit than the photograph suggests, living for 21 years, two months. At the time of his death in a roadside bomb explosion in Tikrit on March 13, 2004, Ford was counted among 584 U.S. service members killed in Iraq.
