From the Boston Globe in the USA:
Son of Professor Opposed to War is Killed in Iraq
by Brian MacQuarrie
This week, the retired Army lieutenant colonel received the grim news that his son had been killed on patrol there.
First Lieutenant Andrew J. Bacevich, 27, of Walpole, died Sunday in Balad of wounds he suffered after a bomb explosion, the military said yesterday.
The soldier, who graduated from BU in 2003 with a degree in communications, is the 56th service member from Massachusetts to be killed in Iraq.
A West Point graduate and former faculty member at both West Point and Johns Hopkins University, Bacevich joined the BU faculty in 1998 and teaches in the history and international relations departments.
