Begley, a 22-year-old mechanic with the U.S. Army's 27th Engineer Battalion, has composed a
three-movement sonata as a tribute to fallen comrades.

The piece honors Pfc. Aaron Edgin and Cpl. Kevin Griner, both killed in battle in 2006, and "all soldiers
who have fallen in the name of freedom," he says. Its title: "The Sonata of War and Peace."
