Sgt. 1st Class Michael S. Curry, 37, had spent the last 20 years of his life in the Army, and for most of that time he had been assigned to the 173rd Airborne Brigade at Caserma Ederle, in Vicenza, Italy. It's also where he met his wife and had two sons, one of whom turned 12 today. The other is 9.
"He was a wonderful husband, father and son," said Curry's sister, Niki Martin, 35. "He was so wonderful, like something that is too good to be true."
