McCORMICK, DAVID PHILLIP
Army Cpl. David Phillip McCormick, 26, of Bay City, TX


Cpl. David Phillip McCormick, 26, of Bay City, passed away Monday, April 28, 2008, in Baghdad, Iraq while proudly serving his country in the United States Army. David was born in Bay City on April 10, 1982 to parents, Leo William McCormick Jr. and Anna June Staten McCormick. David grew up in Bay City and was a graduate of Bay City High School's Class of 2000.
On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, America was attacked by enemies of freedom. David put aside his studies to answer the call of his country to fight a war against terror and hatred. He joined the Army because he was firmly committed to the service of our nation and he wanted to safeguard our liberties. He was serving in his second tour of duty and had just returned to Iraq after spending time at home with his family in early April. While he was home he had applied and was accepted into the business school at Texas State University where he had hoped to attend next fall to study for a bachelor's degree in business and eventually obtain a masters degree in business administration. He also had dreams of continuing his service to his country by becoming a commissioned officer in the United States Coast Guard Reserve.

David was a hero, and like so many others, his life was cut tragically short by forces of oppression, racism and hatred.
