Another Arkansan Dies in Iraq

SEPTEMBER 20, 2004 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CDT

 

HOPE, AR - Another Arkansan has died in the Iraqi war effort.  Thomas Chad Rosenbaum, 25, of Hope, was apparently on leave and in his hometown a few weeks ago before returning to duty.

His family was notified of his death but they weren't given any other details.  His father, Jackie Rosenbaum, said he did not want to discuss his son's military service or other aspects of his life at this time.

An acquaintance, Waylon Lewallen, said Chad Rosenbaum was a couple of years younger than him and they both had attended Hope High School.  Lewallen said he saw Chad at a gym a few weeks ago and Chad said he was heading back in 13 or 14 days.  Lewallen said he told him to be careful.

A funeral director at Herndon Funeral Home said the home is handling the services.  Arrangements are pending.
