Airman 1st Class Nala Cormier was 11 years old on the day she heard sudden, frantic noises of hysteria and dismay outside her Church Point, Louisiana, home. She followed the sounds until she found the source – her older sister holding her toddler son in her arms, wailing.
“A drunk driver swerved into our yard,” Cormier said. "They hit my nephew and kept driving. He was only three years old. He didn’t make it.”
