Staff Sgt. Daniel Bader wasn't afraid of going to war, his wife says. He had greater concerns. "The thing that scared him most was when we had our little girl. She was so tiny and so fragile," said Tiffany Bader of Fort Carson, Colo., of their daughter, Taryn Makenzie. Bader was one of 16 soldiers killed in the Nov. 2 downing of a helicopter carrying troops home from Iraq on leave. "It hasn''t hit me yet, that I''m not going to have a husband. That I''m a widow at 30. That my little girl is going to be raised without a father," Tiffany Bader said. Bader, 28, joined the National Guard shortly after high school graduation, and then joined the Army when he was 18. "He loved it, absolutely loved the military," his wife said.
