Died January 8, 2004 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom

37, of Opelousas, La.; assigned to the 603rd Transportation Company, 142nd Corps Support Battalion, Fort Polk, La.; killed in action while on board a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter when it crashed during a Medevac mission, on Jan. 8 in Fallujah, Iraq.

Two decades after joining the Army right out of high school, Sgt. Craig Davis had been planning to retire in 2004. He was on his way to Baghdad for a medical examination because of arm numbness when the Black Hawk helicopter he was in was shot down on Jan. 8, killing all nine on board. Davis, 37, of Opelousas, La., was stationed at Fort Polk. Survivors include his wife, Rosalind, and their two children.
