Michele Norris talks about the experience of losing a son to war. Her 20-year-old son, Jeremy, was killed in Iraq Oct. 10, 2005, when an Improvised Explosive Device erupted underneath the vehicle he was driving at the front of a convoy.
Mrs. Norris is sworn in at a re-enlistment ceremony in Quantico, Va., by U.S. Marine Corps Col. Rich Anderson. She said she is re-enlisting, in part, because of the example set by her son, Jeremy, who was killed in combat.
