Veronica just started swimming lessons. Her great aunt said "She was excited about life as she should be. She's a 6-year-old girl." Her 15-year-old cousin said "She was just a radiant happy, little girl. She was just so happy. She could brighten anyone’s day.” Veronica's mother Ashley was also seriously wounded and is in critical condition at the hospital.
An Air Force statement released today said 29-year-old Staff Sgt. Jesse Childress was among the 12 killed.
