Fiance remembers San Angelo soldier killed during training


    SAN ANGELO, Texas - "He was home for me," Deja DeLeon said. "At least, that's how he made me feel."

    That's how San Angelo teenager DeLeon described her fianc, Isaac DeLeon. He was one of the nine soldiers from Fort Hood killed during a training accident Thursday.

    She said he was "everyone's rock," and somebody who was "always willing to help."

    Isaac was in a tactical vehicle with the other soldiers when it overturned in flood waters during a routine training exercise in central Texas.

    Isaac, a graduate from Central High School in San Angelo, was 19 when he died -- his fiance, 18. The young couple planned to get married in July.

    "We had our lives ahead of us," Deja said while crying. "We would always talk about the future. I don't want to move on and have a future with someone else, because it was supposed to be with him."

    Isaac joined the U.S. Army in November. He was stationed at Fort Hood for less than two months.
