September 20, 2005
We mourn the loss of one of our own in Iraq. Assistant Regional Security Officer Stephen Eric Sullivan was killed in a Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) attack on a motorcade in Mosul. Steve was a brave American, dedicated to his country and to a brighter future for the people of Iraq.
Steve's death is a tragic loss for all of us at the Department of State. Our thoughts and prayers are with Steve's family. We grieve with them in their loss and stand with them at this difficult time.
Steve Sullivan died in the service of his country and for the cause of democracy and freedom. There is no more noble a sacrifice, and we honor Steve's devotion to country and freedom. 2005/T13-32
