Andrew Schoenmaker, 25, is a graduate of the U. Naval Academy and an executive officer of Baker Company, with the 7th Marines, 1st Battalion. Schoenmaker and his commanding officer bandied about the idea for a picture to send home to the United States signifying that the unit is still in Iraq, but the pose ended up honoring the Sept. "It is in remembrance of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, and the reason that no matter how long we are here, we will continue to push and never forget why we serve," Andrew wrote in an e-mail to his father.
