PHOENIX -- Family, friends and others gathered this morning at a mountain park in Phoenix to honor Army Pfc. Lori Piestewa, a single mother of two from Tuba City who was killed in Iraq shortly after the war there began.
This is the sixth annual sunrise memorial service paying tribute to the fallen soldier, who died on March 23, 2003.
The service was held at Piestewa Peak, which was formerly called Squaw Peak but was renamed to honor Tuba City woman.
