Wyoming – When Lance Corporal Jacob Ross died on March 24th, during his first tour of duty in Afghanistan, he left behind his parents, a sister and a brother. His wife of less than a year also survives him. In the time immediately after Ross's death it's friends who have taken on the responsibility of speaking to the public about who he was and what he stood for. Wyoming Public Radio's Molly Messick visited with some of those who knew the young marine from Gillette long before he left to serve overseas.
