Staff Sergeant Lillian L. Clamens, 35, of Lawton, Okla., was assigned to the 1st Postal Platoon, 834th Adjutant General Company, and served during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM. On October 10, 2007, she was killed when insurgents fired rockets on Camp Victory in Baghdad, Iraq.

Staff Sgt. Clamens graduated from Central High School in 1990, and quickly enlisted in the Army Reserves, but then decided she wanted to serve active duty. She eventually returned to the Army Reserves, working as a full-time postal worker and administrative clerk for her unit.
