Second Lt. Emily Jazmin Tatum Perez, 23, was killed Sept. 12, 2006, when her Humvee was struck by an improvised explosive device as she was leading a convoy through Al Kifl, Iraq. She served in the 204th Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade, 4th Infantry Division of the U.S. Army.

Perez graduated from the U.S. Military Academy in 2005. She was an exemplary student and became the highest-ranking African-American female cadet in the history of West Point. An exceptional athlete, Perez was a sprinter on the track team (200 m) and competed in the triple jump. She also excelled at gymnastics and squats. Her favorite movements included sprinting, double-unders, pull-ups, squats and power cleans.

Perez earned numerous awards for her military service, including the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, and the Combat Action Badge. She was also posthumously awarded the NCAA Award of Valor in 2008.

Perez was the first female African-American officer in U.S. military history to die in combat and the first female West Point graduate to die in the Iraq War. She is survived by her parents, Daniel and Vicki; brother, Kevyn; and many classmates and friends.

    2 RFT:
    Run the Augustine Race Day extreme course (2 miles, 25+ obstacles)
    Add a sandbag to the team backpack every mile.
    Finished at 57ish minutes with Dan Slater. We placed 4th! Allllllmost caught the 3rd place team at the end… This was really a well done obstacle course. Seriously, we need to get more CFJ folks to represent next year! Very challenging and alot of fun to complete.

    Carry a large, awkward object down several flights of stairs for your parents as your family prepares for a massive moving sale taking place several weeks from now.
    Not sure my exact score on this one, but it was approximately 20.
