Iraq Last Death

  In this photo taken Dec. 14, 2011, in Decatur, Ill., Lexie Gifford, 12, reflects on the memories of her father, Marine Pvt. Jonathan Lee Gifford, who was killed just two days into the Iraq war. Lexie was four when she last saw him. As the last U.S. troops withdrew from Iraq on Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011, friends and family of the first and last American fighters killed in combat cherished their memories rather than dwelling on whether the war and their sacrifice was worth it.
