This Dec. 2009 photo provided by Mary Linnerooth Gonzalez shows her and her brother, Pete Linnerooth at their aunt and uncle's home in St. Mary's Point, Minn. Coming back from serving in Iraq, his family noticed he wasn't the same when they met him in Schweinfurt, Germany. "He came home burdened," says Mary. "He was disappointed that he couldn't affect the wheels of change. ... I think he was defeated."
