Brock McNabb mulled over how to leave a legacy for his friend Capt. Peter Linnerooth's kids — a memorial that would give them peace and make them proud. But he was limited to 30 characters for the message on Pete's headstone. How do you honor a life in a handful of words? McNabb then remembered something Linnerooth had once told him: "Maybe we're all meant for just one great deed and we're done." (AP Photo/Jim Mone)
