Family of first Fort Worth man killed in Iraq keeps his memory alive

The memories of Marine Cpl. Jesus Martin "Marty" Antonio Medellin are kept in a simple three-ring binder. Cpl. Medellin was the first casualty from Tarrant County in the war in Iraq. He died April 7, 2003, after an Iraqi artillery round struck his amphibious assault vehicle in central Iraq, just 18 days into Operation Iraqi Freedom.
