Army Staff Sgt. Hemingway was assigned to C Company, 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, Ft. Benning, Ga. Killed when a car exploded next to his Bradley Fighting Vehicle while traveling down a street. Terry was a happy-go-lucky, ordinary guy who loved his family and worked diligently to be a good soldier. He had been deployed with the Army to several of the world's hot spots and had cheated death at least once before. The 19-year veteran, who planned to retire after 20 years, previously was stationed in Panama, Germany and Korea. On a 1988 trip home from Germany, he had been booked on - but missed taking - Pan Am Flight 103, which was blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland. Terry was proud to command two Bradley fighting vehicles, but he was ready for civilian life. He would have more time to spend with his wife, Darlene, and their three children, who flash the same life-of-the-party smile as their father.
