PFC Paul O. Cuzzupe, USA , KIA 08 AUG 2010, in AFGHANISTAN

I hate these announcements, what I hate even more is when they aren’t put up in a timely manner. Due to my move and me without Internet for an extended period of time, I was not able to reflect on the loss of these heroes.

Please leave a comment below, and understand, it was out of my control to get these memorial’s up due to the move.

We at Corpsman.com mourn the loss of both of these Army Medic’s.

    My heart breaks every-time I hear of another hero who has paid the ultimate price for our freedom. PFC Paul O. Cuzzupe died doing what he wanted, “helping people”. This was evidenced in his actions, above and beyond the call of duty, attempting to save a young Afghani child's life just one week before losing his own.

    PFC Paul O. Cuzzupe exemplifies Army Values, one ringing truer than any other words can describe.

    “Selfless Service: Putting the welfare of the Nation, the Army and your subordinates before your own. Selfless service is larger than just one person. In serving your country, they are doing their duty loyally without thought of recognition or gain. The basic building block of selfless service is the commitment of each team member to go a little further, endure a little longer, and look a little closer to see how he or she can add to the effort.”

    Our hearts and prayers go out to this Soldiers family, friends and unit, gone, but never forgotten. May the qualities and examples PFC Cuzzupe displayed in life, live on, in those who knew him.
