The twin explosions that killed Spc. Genaro Acosta on Veterans Day destroyed even his wedding ring, but they left his gold cross intact. "Everywhere he went, he would not take that cross off," his brother Fernando Acosta said. "He was a very strong believer in God." Acosta, 26, of Fair Oaks, Calif., was killed Nov. 11 when his vehicle hit two explosives in Taji, Iraq. He was stationed at Fort Hood. The avid Los Angeles Lakers fan with a fondness for the cartoon character Scooby Doo "felt very strongly about helping other people out," Fernando Acosta said. He reenlisted this year despite his concern over the dangers because "he figured it was the right thing to do," his brother said. "I know that he did not die in vain," said his widow, Roxanne Longoria Acosta. "He was proud of what he did."

It has truly been my honor to sign Genaro's guest book these past few years. Unfortunately, due to complications from my Multiple Sclerosis, this may be the last message I'm able to write. Please forgive me and know that Genaro will always be remembered in my home.
