The next day, during day two of the mission, the vehicle Szymanski was supposed to ride in, struck an improvised explosive device, killing Army Staff Sgt. Joe Nunez, and wounding Air Force Senior Airman Taylor Savage, deployed from Charleston Air Force Base, S.C., and several others. (Courtesy photo)
