In memory of Private Michael J. Slater, age 19, of Scott Depot , WV, who died on April 21 in a combat action in the town of Taji, about 12 miles north of Baghdad.

According to news reports, the recent Winfield High School graduate who died shortly after being deployed to Iraq always wanted to be a soldier.

In the words of The Book of Common Prayer, "may light perpetual shine upon him."
