Guam - At Simon Sanchez High School this morning, former classmates, friends and teachers of U.S. Army Private First Class Jaysine Petree gathered to remember the fallen soldier.  She was killed last week by an improvised explosive device while serving in Afghanistan, and graduated last year from the Yigo school.

Gretchen Andres was one of her teachers, and said, "I told her how to write a sentence with context clues, a two-page essay and a five-page research paper, but today she's teaching me that life is short, don't let fear get in the way of your desires and dreams."

Jaysine was just 19 years old and had only been in the Army for 19 months.
