Army 1st Lt. Timothy E. Price

Died September 7, 2004 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom

25, of Midlothian, Va.; assigned to the 127th Military Police Company, 709th Military Police Battalion, 18th Military Police Brigade, V Corps, Hanau, Germany; killed Sept. 7 by small-arms fire in Baghdad.

When Timothy E. Price came back from Iraq after his first tour, he went to Virginia Tech and urged students to follow the virtues engraved on the pylons at the campus war memorial: brotherhood, honor, leadership, sacrifice and duty. "He was a guy who cared about his people and who led by example," said retired Air Force Col. Rock Roszak. Price, 25, of Midlothian, Va., died Sept. 7 when he came under small-arms attack in Baghdad. He was based in Germany and was serving his second tour of duty in Iraq. Price graduated from Virginia Tech in 2001 with a degree in forestry. "We were blessed to have him for a son, and we are crushed to have lost him," said his father, John. "I can't begin to list all the plans that we had made that will never come to fruition, all the opportunities to spend quality time that will not happen now that he is gone." In addition to the virtues engraved on Tech's pylons, there also is a list of the graduates who have died in every war since World War I. Price's name will now be added to it. He is survived by his parents and a brother, Tommy.
