Sgt. Joseph C. Nurre, 22, of the Army Reserve's 463rd Engineer Battalion was their only child, and the last thing Charlie and Leigh Nurre of Wilton, a suburb of Sacramento, wanted was to see him go to war.

Last Sunday, two military men came with the news that their son had been killed that day near Samarra, Iraq, when a roadside bomb hit his military vehicle during convoy operations.
"We cried and never stopped crying," said Leigh Nurre, a commercial real estate broker. "We had a son who was so special and so compassionate, and had such a huge heart."

The couple last saw their son July 13, when he left for Iraq for a second time after a two-week visit. "That was a God-given gift," his mother said. "He was so loving."

Joe was a wonderful person. He was a terrific son. He always had a friendly smile and was a great storyteller. We will miss him dearly. — Charlie Nurre, father, about his only son
