Maj. Steven Hutchison, 1949-2009, 2nd Battalion, 34th Armor Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division

A 60-year-old Vietnam War veteran killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq has become the oldest Army soldier to die in that conflict…Maj. Steven Hutchison, of Scottsdale, Ariz., served in Vietnam and wanted to re-enlist immediately after the 9/11 terror attacks, but his wife was against it, his brother said…Richard Hutchison told The Associated Press on Thursday that when she died, "a part of him died" so he signed up in July 2007 at age 59…"He was very devoted to the service and to his country," Richard Hutchison said….60-year-old is oldest Army soldier killed in Iraq, Amanda Meyers, AP, 5/15/09

God bless the soul of Major Hutchison.
