Sgt. Micheal E. Dooley, 23, of Pulaski, Va., joined the Army five years ago after graduating from Pulaski County High School. He and his wife, Christine, expected their first child, a son, in October. Dooley was killed June 8 at a checkpoint in Asad, Iraq. He served in the 3rd Armor Cavalry Regiment, based at Fort Carson, Colo. "There hasn't been a day gone by that I didn't worry about my boy," said his mother, Ann Davis."I just wish those people would have appreciated the freedom that they had because of these American boys being there." Davis said she had received one letter from her son since the war in Iraq began, but that Dooley's 11-year-old brother, Jacob, received one just days before he was killed. In the letter, Dooley told his younger brother he couldn't wait to be a father and that he expected Jacob to help teach his son how to play basketball, Davis said.
