After the 2001 terrorist attacks, Trevor Aston enlisted in the Marine Reserves at the relatively advanced age of 29. "He was terribly shaken after 9/11," said his grandmother, Lenore Aston. Aston, 32, of Austin, Texas, was killed Feb. 22 in Anbar province. Aston's grandmother served in the Women's Army Corps during World War II, and his father was in the Army for 27 years. As a boy Aston lived in Texas, Germany and other locations where his father, Robert Aston, was stationed. He attended Austin Community College and had worked as a bartender and booked concert acts for a nearby nightclub. He wanted to be a firefighter either in Austin or in Houston, where his mother lives. "He was a good friend to many people," said his mother, Jewel Aston. "He was just an all-around, good, nice kid."
