Kris Romeo Bishundat joined the U.S. Navy six years ago, two days before his 18th birthday.
In those six years, the native of Waldorf, Md., has traveled around the world on two tours.
"He was just happy he got to see the world, doing what he liked to do, always on the go," a sister said from the family's Maryland home. Bishundat, an information systems technician 2nd class, is assigned to the Pentagon. He gave few details to his family about his duties. Bishundat is among those missing in the Pentagon.
His 24th birthday was Friday.
