Paige Collins, 3, of Davis, OK, lays her head against her grandfather's uniform. The girl's father was serving in Iraq when she was born. Four months after he returned home from duty, he was killed in a motorcycle crash. This will be Collins' third deployment in the last 20 years. Collins said that at one point, he and three sons were serving in the military. One of his sons is deploying with the Guard group today. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
