This August 2005 photo provided by Lisa Freeman shows her husband Gary, son Matthew and her in Meridian, Miss. where Matthew finished his jet training. Matthew Freeman excelled at everything he set his mind to. Eagle Scout, honor roll, student council president. So no one was surprised when he won an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy, following in his father's footsteps. After graduation in 2002, the son and grandson of naval aviators took his commission in the Marine Corps and went for jets. (AP Photo/Lisa Freeman)
