A Tibetan immigrant who came to the United States as a child was killed in combat in Iraq on Saturday, the Pentagon said Monday.
Lance Cpl. Tenzin Dengkhim, 19, of Falls Church, Va., died "as a result of hostile action" in Anbar province, Iraq. He was assigned to 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune.
Pema Gorap, a family friend, told The Washington Post that the Dengkhims came to the United States from Tibet as part of a relocation project approved by Congress in the early 1990s.
Dengkhim entered the Marines in September 2003 and joined his unit in March 2004, said Lt. Barry Edwards, a spokesman for the 2nd Marine Division.
