My son-in-law was the type of person who would take his shoes and shirt off and give them to someone who needed them. If he saw someone broken down on the highway, he would turn around and help them.

Bachar married his wife in a small backyard ceremony 12 days before he deployed, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The couple had been planning a larger celebration when he returned. Bachar spoke English, Spanish and Arabic.
