A Marine from Austin has been killed in combat in Iraq.
The Defense Department on Friday announced the death of 23-year-old Sergeant George M. Ulloa Junior.
He died Thursday from wounds suffered during combat operations in Al Anbar province.
Ulloa was assigned to the Second Tank Battalion, Second
Marine Division, Two Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
We work with his father at UT...George sr., The family are active members in the San Jose Catholic church right down the road ( the parking lot is a short cut to the liquor store ). I see him and his big ass truck and BBQ pit there all the time. Our condolences go out to George and his family, and George jr's wife and kids.
What they don't report is he was 30 days short of coming home from his second tour in that godforsaken place.
Semper Fi George, god speed.
