Unknown…is imagining a Thanksgiving evening, pumpkin pie on the sideboard, perhaps talking about what favorite holiday music one is looking forward to in the month ahead? And then there is a knock at the door, and perhaps expecting late relatives or friends, a woman walks smiling to the door.

And meets uniformed men with grim faces.
Because Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Scott C. Dayton, 42, of Woodbridge, Virginia; assigned to a Mobile Explosive Ordinance unit, died Nov. 24 in northern Syria, of wounds sustained in an improvised explosive device blast.

Happy Thanksgiving?  Or perhaps, a bit luckier, the notification team didn’t get there until this morning?
