James A. Chance III didn't want his comrades with spouses or children to risk themselves driving through dangerous territory in Iraq. So the Mississippi National Guardsman volunteered to lead his convoy. Chance, of Kokomo, Miss., was killed Nov. 6 when his truck hit a land mine near the Syrian border.
