When Lt. Col. Dominic R. Baragona died in a traffic accident on an Iraqi highway in 2003, few would have foreseen that his death would prompt a federal judge in Atlanta to levy a $4.9 million judgment against a U.S. military contractor in Kuwait.

Baragona was killed when a tractor-trailer rig owned by Kuwait & Gulf Link Transport Co. struck the Humvee in which he was riding on May 19, 2003, as he was leaving Iraq to return home. He became, at that time, the highest-ranking military officer to die during the United States’ 2003 invasion of Iraq. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
