Marine Cpl. Jaygee Meluat, 24, of Tamuning, Guam; assigned to 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.; killed Sept. 13 by enemy action in Anbar province, Iraq. Jaygee and his wife, Melanie, playfully tried to predict the gender of the couple's first baby. He wanted a girl; she wanted a boy. But he had to miss the birth due to training. He said that since he got his baby girl I could name her. She named the baby MiaCai in honor of the proud new father. She said "mia" means "mine" and "cai" means "girl". The day he died was their daughter's third birthday. Meluat was a native of Palau, the youngest of 12 children, and had moved to Guam as a teenager to live with one of his older sisters. He graduated George Washington High School in 1999. He was one of the students you remembered because he was always laughing, smiling and joking when he was on campus. His father, Jonathan George Meluat.
