"He wanted to fight for his country," said his heartbroken younger sister, Lilliana Calderone. "He always wanted to be there."

Pablo Calderon joined the Army in 1997, right out of High School. "He went straight to the army from high school," said his sister. "He wanted to improve himself. He was proud. He loved his country."

Sgt. Calderon was killed when an IED was detonated near his vehicle in Fallujah, Iraq. Also killed in the attack was Sgt. Jose Guereca of Missouri City, Texas.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

I don't think there are enough Wednesday's to honor those who need to be remembered. You do a great job of trying, though. God bless you, AM.

Airman mom -
That you dedicate so much time to remembering these heroes each week is so appreciated. Thank you for your time and sincerity to honor them. Their sacrifice - and that of their family - can never be forgotten.
Many blessings on your son as he serves.
