Capt. Torre Mallard

Capt. Torre Mallard searches a man pulled out of a house during a cordon-and-search in Baghdad on Sept. 16, 2004.

When Army Capt. Torre Mallard's life began, he was an Army brat. It ended in uniform on March 10, during his second deployment to Iraq. As the U.S. marks the fifth anniversary of the war, Mallard's friends and family in Anniston, Ala., gather to honor his dedication and determination.
