Tracy has lost more soldiers than any other city in San Joaquin County
As time passes, the loss of son Jessie in the Iraq War doesn't fade for Jan Martinez. She keeps many photos of her son around her home to remember him by. (Glenn Moore/San Joaquin News-Service)

A U.S. Marines flag hangs from a garage door, an enlarged
portrait on the wall, a framed e-mail from a co-worker, endless
stories about a son who is lost but never forgotten.
The third winter since America has gone to war has descended,
and at the homes of four families in Tracy, memories and emotions
crowd the lives of those who remain.
