With Respect, Honor, and Gratitude


It is with a saddened and heavy, heavy heart that The Bone notifies you all today that one of the six American casualties of the booby trapped house in Diyala, Iraq was Army Staff Sergeant Jonathan Kilian Dozier, the brother of my good friend and fellow officer, Jennifer Dozier Rider.

As you can imagine, the news has been devastating for Jen and her family and friends. Our local newspaper did a story on the Dozier family this past Veteran’s Day to honor their military service, which expands from the time of the Civil War. An area artist contributed the drawing you see below (Jon is the soldier in front). To read the story, click on the drawing.
