Ohio Soldier Demonstrated School Pride

Army Sgt. Nick Casey of Canton, Ohio, was killed recently in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. The 22-year-old is remembered most for the pride he took in his sometimes beleaguered inner-city high school. Days after his death, family and friends went back to Timken High School in Casey's memory.
