New Jersey resident, Sgt. Trista L. Moretti, lost her life on June 25th when her unit was attacked by insurgents in Iraq. She was 27 years old.
Her death is “a huge loss to the community,” said Natalie Zeno, a coach and teacher at South Plainfield High School, from which Moretti graduated in 1998.
“She was always smiling, always laughing,” Zeno said. “We are better people for having known her.”
Sgt. Trista L. Moretti is the 82nd female casualty among the Coalition Forces serving in Iraq.
