Jair De Jesus Garcia, 29
He went to school and pursued a career, but he was always looking for something. He didn't feel fulfilled. Nothing made him feel completed until he decided to join the Army.
— Maria Luisa Avneri, mother
Garcia's mother said that after his death she felt so devastated she wondered if she could go on living. Then she received a message he had written the day before he was killed. 'I felt like he was embracing me,' she said. 'He told me, ‘I’m OK, I’m fine.’'
