March 31, 2003 Conyers - 19-year old Diego Rincon wanted to help his adopted country avenge the September 11th terrorist attact.
That's why he joined the army.
Saturday, the native of Colombia died in a terrorist attack at an army checkpoint near Najaf, Iraq.
"My son Diego was a very brave man, and we are very proud of him," his father said Monday at a family press conference.
A suicide bomber posing as a taxi driver detonated a bomb that killed four American soldiers.
At the family's home in Conyers today, Rincon's brother, Fabian, read the last letter Diego wrote home just before the war began.
"So, I guess the time has come for us to see what we are made of, who will crack when the stress level rises and who will be calm all the way through it only time will tell. We are at the peak of our training and it's time to put it all to the test."
Rincon and the other four soldiers killed in the attack were stationed at Fort Stewart in Hinesville.
