Merrilee Carlson traveled to Fort Knox from Minnesota to see her son’s name on a memorial Wednesday morning.
Carlson’s son, Sgt. Michael C. Carlson, was killed in January 2005 when the Bradley vehicle he was riding in rolled over into a canal while on deployment. However, his efforts to free his comrades likely led to the survival of two soldiers, she said.
“That was Michael being Michael,” she said.
