Malia Fry’s future was taken away when her husband, Marine Gunnery Sgt. John David Fry, died March 8, 2006, in Iraq, while disarming an explosive.
“A lot of our plans are completely different. My life has completely changed,” said Fry, 36, of Lorena. “My life was living on a base and using the facilities. All my friends were military and now I had to leave that and I had to start over — 100 percent start over.”
