Tetrault was already planning out his month of leave back in Moreno Valley. He wanted to go bungee jumping and skydiving and couldn't wait to see the Pacific Ocean again, his mother said. He planned to spend a week at the beach and wanted to see family and friends again.
"He didn't like having to sit; he liked to go, liked to play," Carriere said. "He was just always on the move. He liked being outside."
Tetrault planned to join the football team at the base in Twentynine Palms and to study computer programming in college. But his mother said he hadn't been looking too far into the future.
"Jason was the type of person that didn't make long-term plans," she said. "His theory was: You never know what life is going to throw at you."
