Dixon Hawes was a sergeant in the United States Army, assigned to the 81st Infantry since 1998. He was killed in Iraq, allegedly because an embedded reporter, Frank Elliot, disclosed troop movements on national television. When Elliot was later shot outside a bar, Hawes' fellow soldier and friend George Meacham was tried for the assault, though later developments suggested that Elliot had in fact staged his own assault.
