At age 26, Timothy L. Hayslett had already served eight years in the Army and had just re-enlisted with
the idea of spending his entire career in the military. From Iraq, he complained about the heat but
otherwise seemed to be enjoying his job and was in good spirits. "He said, 'Don't worry about me,
Mom. My guys and I take care of each other. We're all going to come out of this alive. We'll be all
right,'" said his mother, Mary Hayslett. Sgt. Hayslett, who was from Carlisle, Pa., and stationed in
Germany, died Nov. 15 when the Humvee he was in was hit by a grenade in Baghdad. Survivors
include his wife, Kori, and daughters Gracy and Kaitlyn. "When I found out that he was going to Iraq, I
was worried that he was afraid," Mary Hayslett said. "Then he called from Germany and he said, 'Mom,
I'm not afraid. I'm ready to drive my tank right onto Saddam's front steps.'"
