Nick, my nephew, had originally been stationed in Bosnia and was there when 9/11 occurred. He deliberately transferred around so that he could get with a company scheduled to go to Iraq since he felt he needed to be somewhere that he was doing the most good. He loved what he did and was proud to represent and defend our country. He was killed 11/9/03, at the age of 24, while on routine patrol when their vehicle was attacked by small arms fire and grenade launchers. He died doing what he most wanted to do in the world and I am very proud of him for that. But I still miss him terribly.
