At the age of 6, Lionel Ayro dreamed of driving 18-wheelers. As he matured, the dream grew with him _ and he made plans to use his military pay to buy a rig and start his own trucking company. "He was a hardworking young man," Catherine Ayro said of her son. "He's always been like that. He'd go to school, come home, work in the fields, then come mow the yard, take out the trash and clean the house. Then he would study." The 22-year-old combat engineer from Jeanerette, La., was killed Dec. 21 in the bombing of a mess hall tent in Mosul, Iraq. He was based at Fort Lewis. Comrades remembered the soldier as sensitive, with a strong work ethic. He was "a man who would cry when he saw the Lion King," Sgt. Efrain Rodriguez said. Ayro was the fastest soldier in their company, Rodriguez said. He recalled trying _ and failing _ to keep up with him during a 2-mile run Ayro finished in just under 11 minutes.
