Army Pfc. Andrew L. Tuazon

Died May 10, 2004 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom

21, of Chesapeake, Va.; assigned to the 293rd Military Police Company, 3rd Military Police Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart, Ga.; killed May 10 by hostile fire while on guard duty in Mosul, Iraq.

Like his grandfather, Andrew Tuazon learned to weld, and took a shipyard job after high school graduation. But after six months, he wanted something more and joined the Army. Rose Tauzon said she didn't want her son to join at first, but she knew he wouldn't change his mind. "So I wished him good luck and told him he had my blessing," she said. Pfc. Tuazon, 21, of Chesapeake, Va., was killed by an apparent sniper May 10 in Mosul, Iraq. He was with a military police unit based at Fort Stewart, Ga., and had also served in Afghanistan. His stepfather, Ron Czypinski, said he was proud of Tuazon's choices and work ethic. Tuazon's father died when he was 5 years old, and Czypinski said he'd been part of the boy's life since then.
