Sgt. Cauthorn of Midlothian, Va., attended Manchester High School where he was a member of ROTC throughout high school. When Forrest graduated his dad gave him a motorcycle. The idea was for him to ride all summer, crisscrossing the country while he decided what to do with his life. But what the father did not know was that his son had already made his decision. He had joined the Army. His father had his son’s body cremated. He plans to make the cross-country ride his son never made “and take him with me.” He was 22.
