Everything that Kristen Fenty had been trying to push out of her head was true. She began to wail. Gretchen came over and took the baby.
No, Kristen realized. There's someone there.

She opened the door. Two men. An Army chaplain and a Lt. Col. who was a friend of Joe's.

The point was to get Gretchen back to Fort Drum asap so she could be there for Kristen when the news came in. She zoomed from PA to NY 18/
MAJ Richard Timmons' wife Gretchen was close w/Kristen, but was away on a family trip. Timmons, with permission, called his wife 17/
