Arlington Heights residents Bob and Linda Stack lost their son USMC Lance Cpl. James Bray Stack on November 10, 2010 when he was killed during combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan after only one month of his first tour of duty overseas. Last November, they held a Memorial Service at Memory Gardens Cemetery marking five years since their son's death as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
