Let the memory of Solomon be with us forever
Spc. Solomon C. Bangayan made his parents proud by joining the service shortly after moving to the United States from his native Philippines. Bangayan, 24, lived briefly in the town of Jay, Vt., with his mother, Helen, stepfather, Victor Therrien, and younger sister, Hilda. He obtained a permanent residency visa, then joined the Army. "We were just so proud of him coming from the Philippines for just a short time and wanting to serve the United States," Therrien said. "Coming from another country, he appreciated what we have here." Bangayan, based at Fort Bragg, was killed Jan. 2 when his convoy was ambushed. Friends and family said Bangayan wanted to go to nursing school and was weeks away from finishing his military service.
