Staff Sgt. Frederick L. Miller Jr. was going to be a dad for a third time. His wife, Jamie, told him the good news _ that daughters Haley and Sierra would be getting a brother in December _ after he had been sent overseas. Miller, 27, of Hagerstown, Ind., died Sept. 20 in an explosion while on patrol outside Ramadi, Iraq. He was stationed at Fort Carson. Miller joined the Army after graduating from high school in 1994. He re-enlisted after the 2001 terrorist attacks, said his mother, Anne Miller. "He had a job to do, and that''s what he was going to do," she said. "I tried to talk him out of it, but he wouldn''t." Jolene Miller said her brother was enthusiastic about his Army service, but that his tone had changed in an e-mail she received from him shortly before he was killed. "He said things were getting worse out there," she said, "and that he was scared."
