SSgt Cawley, James W.
F Co., 2nd Bn, 23rd MAR, 4th MARDIV
KIA 29 March 2003 OIF
James W. Cawley, 41, of Roy, Utah,
met and married his wife Miyuki while serving in the Marines
on the Island of Okinawa. They have two children, a son
named Cecil, age 8, and a daughter Keiko, age 6. He served
for 12 years in the Marine Corps, retired and became a Salt
Lake City Police Officer, Detective, and a SWAT team member.
He enlisted in the Marine reserves and was called back to
active duty in early 2002. He was tough, and yet very
soft-hearted. He was fluent in Japanese and could read
and write in Kanji. He also served as a missionary for the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Fukuoka
Japan Mission. He was one of America's best, a truly moral,
family man who loved his wife and children as well as his
country. He believed in what he was doing and was supportive
of efforts to free the Iraqi people of oppression. He will
truly be missed by his family, friends and community.
