Honoring Veteran Lori Piestewa

Army Pfc. Lori Piestewa (1973-2003)was the first female U.S.soldier killed in the Iraq war and the first Native American woman killed in combat. Her memorial in a tiny cemetery outside Tuba City, Arizona serves as a reminder that almost every community in America has a local hero to whom people can pay their respects.
