A young soldier honors one of our own.
When Pfc. Matt Medlock first met Army Lt. Ken Ballard in Iraq, he didn't know him as his mom's next-door neighbor. He only knew him as the soldier who saved him from an ambush in Baghdad...

"It was the least I could do for him," Medlock, 21, said after the funeral in Mountain View, where Ballard grew up. "After what he did for us then, I wish I could have been there for him."
