Family remembers fallen soldier

Margarita Rodriguez sat in her living room on Monday holding a photo of her son, Sgt. Jose Rodriguez, as she and other loved ones shared some of their memories of the soldier who was killed in Afghanistan last week. The 2008 Gustine High School graduate, who first joined the Army in 2008 and was assigned to Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Wash., in 2009, died after being shot while serving in Kandahar province.
