Family members of those in the armed services live with the fear that their loved one will be killed in combat. But for the family of 22-year-old Marine Cpl. Steve Jorgenson, the news was in a way, worse. Having survived nine months in Afghanistan and training for a new "dangerous" mission, Cpl. Jorgenson was killed in a traffic accident on the West Side Highway early on the morning of May 26.
It was his first night in New York.
