Bosveld, a member of the 527th Military Police, was killed Oct 26thduring a mortar attack at a Baghdad police station.

As the word of the 19-year-old’s death filtered through the community, friends who knew the fun-loving brunette sought out one another to grieve and relive memories spent with their fallen friend.

Although Bosveld attended Waupun High School for only two years after transferring from Oshkosh West High School, it is clear that she made a lasting impression in the lives of those who knew her.

“She was energetic and always laughing,” -former classmate. “When she first came to school, we just kind of pulled her into our circle and took her under our wing.”

Friends say that Bosveld was very independent and comfortable with who she was.  “She was really unique and had her own style and wasn’t embarrassed to show it.  Sometimes we would just do silly stuff, like dress up like boys and then go out in public.”
