Spc. Marvin A. Camposiles moved with his parents to the United States from Nicaragua when he was a young boy, but he always maintained strong ties to his native country. A U.S. citizen, he said he wished to be buried in his hometown of Jinotega, where many of his relatives still live. Camposiles, 25, of Austell, Ga., was electrocuted April 17 while working on a generator at a base near Samarra, Iraq. Based in Schweinfurt, Germany, he was a power generator equipment repairman. "What we know is very little, but it is really hard that we've lost him," said his aunt, Dora Campos. Survivors include his parents, Marta Siles and Marvin Campos of the Atlanta area.
