Burlington County Times
A Quakertown father of three was killed in action in Iraq Saturday.

Staff Sgt. Mark C. Baum, 32, a member of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard’s 56th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, was killed during an attack in Mushada, Iraq.

Baum, who was a member of Detachment 1, Company B, 1-111th Infantry from Phoenixville, was struck by small arms fire after the quick-reaction force he was assigned to responded to an attack from an improvised explosive device around 5 a.m. He was airlifted to Baghdad and died around 10 a.m. No other soldiers were killed or injured during the incident.

He is survived by his wife, Heather, two daughters, Alexis, 6, and Kailey, 3, and a 7-month old son, Conrad, as well as his parents, Howard and Debra Baum.More...
