Several days before Army Sgt. Amanda Pinson of Lemay deployed to Iraq, she visited with her cousin Jennifer Jerome.
They chatted about many things, but Jerome says one comment stands out in her mind from that conversation: “Amanda said, ‘If something were to happen, what if people forget me?’ ’’
Jerome assured Pinson that nothing would happen, but she also made a promise.
“I told her, ‘I will never let anyone forget you.' ’’
