Sister remembers soldier killed in Iraq

The last time Ursula Domino spoke with her brother, Army Sgt. Chadrick O. Domino, was to thank him for an unexpected gift of three dozen roses delivered to her for Mother’s Day and as an early birthday gift.
“The card was not signed and I couldn’t figure out who sent them, but about a week later he called to ask if I’d gotten them.
He was always thoughtful and sweet like that. We told each other we loved one another and that was the last time I spoke with him,” Ursula said.
Domino, 23, of Ennis, Texas, was killed by small-arms fire May 31 in Baghdad. He was a 2002 high school graduate and was assigned to Fort Lewis, Wash.
“Chad took all the entrance tests for the Army and the recruiters were blown away by the high scores he received. He entered the Army to serve his country and keep all of us safe and even after being wounded in his first tour in Iraq, he went again,” said his sister.
She said her brother, who was on his second tour, loved to eat and he loved his mama’s cooking. “That boy would eat us out of house and home when he came back on leave.”
Domino also is survived by his mother and father, Gloria and Willis Domino.
