Pfc Byron J Fouty
United States Army
KIA 12 May 2007
The father of Army Sgt. Alex Jimenez, of Lawrence, Mass., said the remains of his son and another
soldier, Pvt. Byron W. Fouty, of Waterford, Mich., had been identified in Iraq.

Jimenez, 25, and Fouty, 19, were kidnapped along with a third member of the 2nd Brigade of the
10th Mountain Division during an ambush in May 2007 in the volatile area south of Baghdad known
as the "triangle of death." The body of the third seized soldier, Pfc. Joseph Anzack Jr. of Torrance,
Calif., was found in the Euphrates River a year later.

Jimenez's father, Ramon "Andy" Jimenez, said uniformed military officials came to his home in
Lawrence on Thursday to tell him that his son's body and some of his son's personal effects had
been discovered. Fouty's stepfather, Gordon Dibler, said military officials came to his Oxford home
to break the news.

The Pentagon generally waits 24 hours after notifying the next of kin before making a release
public.

Andy Jimenez told The Associated Press through a translator that the news "shattered all hope"
the family had to "see Alex walk home on his own."

"Every day that he's been missing has been a day of `what could have been' ... but after hearing
the news today ... I'm still in shock," Dibler said.

Fouty, I remember when I met you in basic (good times). We sweat, trained and laughed
together. We ran into each other again several months later in Iraq before you left us. I will
always miss you brother, my family always hears your name and knows of you as if you are
in our family. Never will you be forgotten. Till Vahalla! SSG. RUIZ

Although i never will meet you i count you as one of my heroes. Every time i get to talk to
my husband still in iraq i am grateful, but think of your family who will never have that
blessing of just hearing your voice again. I pray for them often and will remember you
always. Thank you for your service and your ultimate sacrifice.

All gave some, some gave all......rest in peace Byron.
To the family, I have had Byron's photo and info on my desk since
Thanksgiving. I can't take it down and hate to throw it away. Are you keeping
these reminders? I can send it.
