Kentucky soldier dies of non-combat injury in Iraq

By Betsy Vereckey
Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The mother of a soldier from eastern Kentucky who died in Iraq said her son was fulfilling a lifelong dream to see the world.

Sgt. Joseph M. Tackett, 22, died Thursday in Baghdad of a non-combat related injury, Pentagon officials said.

Tackett’s mother, Kathy, said she was visited by a military representative Thursday evening, who said Tackett had been shot. She said she was told that no more details were available until an investigation had been completed.

Joseph Tackett often wrote e-mails to his mother in Whitehouse, Ky., where he was born and raised, telling her of the new and exciting things he was doing every day.

“He told me at one point that he was standing in a mosque and said, ‘There’s not many people who’ve ever done this, Mom,”’ Kathy Tackett said in a telephone interview on...

  Dear Joseph,

I am always filled with mixed feelings when I see a soldier lost to non-combat related situations. But then I realize that God called you home without all the trauma...It is just a natural death. Thank you so much for your committment to our country and the world. I am so glad you did not have to face the ugliness of this war. You died as you probably would have here at home. God comfort your family and friends in that knowledge. Yours was a natural death...in a situation where you were doing what you believed in.


I hate this war though.


THANK YOU!

Mary

  Freedom Isn't Free


I watched the flag pass by one day.

It fluttered in the breeze

A young soldier saluted it, and then

He stood at ease.

I looked at him in uniform

So young, so tall, so proud

With hair cut square and eyes alert

He'd stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men like him

Had fallen through the years.

How many died on foreign soil?

How many mothers' tears?

How many Pilots' planes shot down?

How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?

No Freedom isn't free


I heard the sound of taps one night,

When everything was still.

I listened to the bugler play

And felt a sudden chill.

I wondered just how many times

That taps had meant "Amen"

When a flag had draped a coffin

of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children,

Of the mothers and the wives,

Of fathers, sons and husbands

With interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard at the

bottom of the sea

Of unmarked graves in Arlington.....

No -- Freedom isn't free!!
