Kathleen Marie Sherry

West Point, 1989

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by GySgt. Steve Lehner, USMC (Retired) on October 23, 2009:

I just remember sitting in library with Kathy and talking (at Sweet Home High School) about politics and other topics and just plane non-sense. She was smart and funny. She signed my yearbook. I remember when I heard she was killed. I was very sad. And I was very surprised because I did not know she was an Army Officer. I then felt proud of her service and happy that I knew her. Strangely enough when I went to Kuwait/Iraq in 2003 I met a Marine Corps Captain named Steve Szmanski (spelling ?) from Buffalo, NY, who Knew Kathy as well. I think he went to Kenmore West. We both Shared stories about her. I wrote this now because I just found my yearbook from high school and it brought back a lot of memories. "Semper Fi" Kathy, you are missed.
