Army Staff Sgt. Maudlyn White, 38, was born in St. Croix, lived in Arlington and had a 5-year-old daughter and four brothers and sisters. White's stepfather, Richard Irish, declined to talk to a Washington Post reporter. But in an interview with the Virgin Islands Daily News, he and White's friends described her as a quiet person who was independent. "She likes to do things her own way, and that's why she joined the Army," Irish said. -- Andrew DeMillo
