A Tribute to Uday Singh
Today, marks five years when Uday Singh, specialist in the United States Army gave the ultimate sacrifice in the name of his second home. He was killed in Habbaniyah Iraq when enemy forces attacked his patrol. Uday was assigned to C Company, 1st Battalion, 34th Armored Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, based in Fort Riley, Kansas.
His last letter to his father said: Dad, we do not know who is our enemy. Every day we are fired upon at least 20 to 30 times....
Uday was the first Indian in the US Army to have been killed in Iraq. He grew up in Punjab and Haryana. He was a top student and had many opportunities but his sense and love for America overcome other mental impediments. His constitution even caused him to do the right thing against his parent's wishes.
Uday was an American hero and an Indian son to whom all should take pause to understand the ultimate sacrifice he made for all of us...
