Meanwhile at the National Guard armory in Jersey City, NBC's Rehema Ellis introduced us to Sgt Victor Hernandez and his fiancee Sgt Carmen Villegas and his soon-to-be stepson Sgt Felipe Diaz. The family is scheduled to ship off to Iraq in January. Villegas joined the Guard 29 years ago when Diaz was just a baby: "He grew up around armories," Ellis pointed out, "so she was not surprised when he also joined the Guard." Ellis asked Diaz the morbid question of what he would do if his mother died in combat: "Take her home. That is what she wants. I will take her home."
