Associated Press | September 13, 2007
TEXAS CITY, Texas - The mother of a soldier who died in a Baghdad vehicle accident weeks after co-writing a New York Times op-ed piece -- wants the Army to explain his death.
The August 19th editorial co-written by 28-year-old Sergeant Omar Mora was critical of the Pentagon's positive assessment of the Iraq war.
Mora, who grew up in Texas City, enlisted after the 2001 terrorist attacks.
Olga Capetillo says she wants to know details of how her son died Monday.
Capetillo said that in the weeks since writing the piece with six other active duty soldiers, Mora had seemed depressed and withdrawn.
Mora and co-authors Sergeant Yance Gray of Ismay, Montana, died in the vehicle accident -- along with five other U.S. soldiers and two detainees.
The single-vehicle accident also wounded eleven other soldiers and one detainee.
The military did not mention hostile fire when referring to the accident.
