Army Sgt. Cari Anne Gasiewicz, Cheektowaga, NY

Army Sgt. Cari Anne Gasiewicz, a 28-year-old interpreter, was in a convoy in 2004 traveling to Kuwait, where she planned to spend Christmas before heading home. She was killed by two improvised explosive devices.

"Cari Lane" in the Buffalo suburb of Cheektowaga was Bordeaux Drive when Gasiewicz and other neighborhood kids played tennis and kickball there.

Narrow and with no houses and little traffic, the street served only to connect two others. Now it connects a father to the daughter he lost.

"Every day I say `good morning’ to her," said Paul Gasiewicz, who drives the street on his way to work.

On the first anniversary of her death, her parents watched as the Military Intelligence Headquarters at Fort Gordon, Ga., became "Gasiewicz Hall."

Closer to home, two pear trees grow behind the softball backstop at Depew High School in their daughter’s honor. "Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat," her coach and former teammates had etched on a plaque.
