STAFFORD TOWNSHIP - Kareem Khan, a 2005 Southern Regional graduate killed last week in Baqouba, Iraq, will be laid to rest today in a private burial, according to a spokeswoman for the Arlington National Cemetery.

"The family has requested that the burial be private and no press will be allowed," said spokeswoman Phyllis White.

Three other members of Khan's team and an interpreter also were killed in the blast; 12 other soldiers were injured.

Army major dies in attack - James Michael Ahearn

By April Johnston, Staff writer, Fayetteville Observer

Her mother warned her: A soldier’s business is war. There is no safety. There are no guarantees.

But the Iraqi daughter loved the American officer.

And so, in 2005 — two years after they met in Iraq — she left her country to move to his and become his wife.

And on Thursday — four years after her mother’s warning — Lena Ahearn became a widow.
