An earlier post – since deleted – referenced the death of Staff Sergeant Shannon Weaver as a female casualty. This is incorrect.
Staff Sergeant Weaver‘s name was mistakenly identified on the Iraq Coalition Casualty website.
My deepest apologies if the error caused any additional pain or distress to Staff Sergeant Weaver’s family or friends. While the scope of the “names” portion of The Mother’s Day Project restricts itself to female casualties, the larger goal is to personalize the losses of war. The loss of Staff Sergeant Shannon Weaver’s life is tragic. I extend my sincere condolences to anyone whose life he touched in any way, large or small.
