Capt. Douglas A. Dicenzo, 30, of Plymouth, N.H., was killed in Iraq last week when his Humvee was hit by a roadside bomb.
When Doug DiCenzo was getting ready to graduate from high school in Plymouth, N.H., the class president and football star only applied to one school: West Point.
His mother says DiCenzo always wanted to be a career soldier. After graduating from West Point, he rose quickly through the ranks.
DiCenzo was a captain leading about 130 men when he was killed in Iraq last week. His Humvee was hit by a roadside bomb. Shannon Mullen has a profile.
