Combat Diary

by Public Relations Office - Cedarville, OH

Throughout Memorial Day weekend, the A&E Television Network aired a dramatic documentary called “Combat Diary: The Marines of Lima Company.” One of the Marines featured was Cedarville University student Lance Cpl. James Howard ’07.

As a member of Lima Company, James was deployed to Iraq for approximately seven months in 2005. His unit lost a great deal of soldiers, including one Marine who was James’ Bible study partner. The two-hour documentary used the Marines’ own words and video footage to express the emotions and realities of their incredible experience.

James is a junior pastoral studies major from South Shore, Kentucky.
