To those members of CIDAA who made donations to Sgt Peters family, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

We collected $2225.00 and are in the process of forwarding it to Ashley Peters.

(We even had a retired Marine from Charlotte, NC make a donation of $75.)

Again Thank you very much.

I recently saw the press release about Special Agent Peters. It is indeed very tragic. My heart and my prayers go out to the family. The death of every Soldier is tragic. But, being a former CID Agent this one really strikes out at me even though I never met this young man. It reminds me that the brotherhood of the badge remains strong. May God grant his family a sense of His presence during this tragic time and may He fill them with a sense of peace, the peace that surpasses all human understanding.

I have had several personal off-line inquiries from CIDAA members, as to how Special Agent Peters was killed while in the performance of his duties in Afghanistan.

According to many news sources already posted on Bing and Google, S/A Peters was assigned to the CID Special Operations Unit, tasked with gathering evidence in felony-level crimes. According to News sources, he was killed by an IED explosive device. He was the first special agent within this division to be killed in Iraq or Afghanistan.

See Bing or Google for several stories and photographs of SA Peters.

May he forever rest in peace. Lets remember
his wife, son and the Peters family in our prayers. Carl Craig

Please pray for the family of our fallen comrade.
Special Agent Joseph M. Peters
Peters was born Dec. 22, 1988. After graduating from high school in 2007, he enlisted in the U.S. Army from his hometown of Springfield, Mo. He completed Basic Combat Training at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., and Advanced Individual Training as a Human Intelligencer Collector at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., and was assigned to the 210th Military Intelligence Company. Following this assignment, Peters was assigned to the 14th Military Intelligence Battalion. He served as a Human Intelligence Collector at both assignments.

Peters reclassified as an Army Criminal Investigations Special Agent and was assigned to the 286th Military Police Detachment (CID), Vicenza, Italy as a Special Agent with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.

This was his third deployment in support of the War on Terror with two previous deployments to Iraq.

“We are all deeply saddened by the death of one of our own – Special Agent Joseph Peters,” said Major General David Quantock, the Provost Marshal General of the United States Army and Commanding General of the United States Army Criminal Investigation Command. “Special Agent Peters was a highly respected agent and Soldier who sacrificed his life in the defense of this nation. We are extremely proud of his service and what he accomplished as a CID Special Agent and as a Soldier. His death is a reminder to all of us of the unequaled contributions our military members and their families make on a daily basis in the defense of the freedoms that we all enjoy and value so dearly.”

He was promoted to Sergeant Aug. 1, 2010.

His military education includes the Criminal Investigation Division Agent Course, Protective Services Training Course, Human Intelligence Collector Course, Joint Analyst Interrogator Collaboration Course, the Advanced Crime Scene Investigative Technician Course and the Warrior Leader Course.

His awards and decorations include the Joint Service Achievement Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal 2nd Award, National Defense Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal with Arrow Device, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Non-Commissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon and the Driver’s Badge.

He was posthumously awarded the Combat Action Badge, Bronze Star Medal and Purple Heart.

He is survived by his wife and 20 month old son.
