A world traveler, Artis Henderson dreamed of living abroad after college and one day becoming a writer. Marrying a conservative Texan soldier and being an Army wife was never in her plan. Nor was the devastating helicopter crash that took his life soon after their marriage. On November 6, 2006, the Apache helicopter carrying Artis's husband Miles crashed in Iraq, leaving her -- in official military terms -- an "unremarried widow." She was twenty-six years old.
