Growing up, I knew Todd Harris as a standout athlete for Sahuaro High School. He was a big guy, but he had a teddy bear charisma. He was probably the friendliest guy you will ever meet. I got to cross paths with him because of our mutual involvement in youth sports, particularly football and soccer.
Like me, he joined the Army after High School, but unlike me, he became career Army. He was a part of the storied 10th Mountain Division. His service brought him to Afghanistan. On November 3rd, 2010, he was killed in an insurgent attack on his unit.
