Albert Ware, an army sergeant, died in Afghanistan in December when enemy forces exploded his convoy.

Ware not only died for America, but he died for a foreign land. With
his family, he immigrated to America as a child to escape the brutal
civil war in Liberia. Now Chika Oduah reports on how his family and
neighbors in the Pullman community honor the fallen soldier.
