Fort Carson remembers murdered soldier

Fort Carson held a memorial service Wednesday for Staff Sergeant David Dunlap, 37, the Mountain Post soldier shot and killed along with his pregnant wife last week by burglars in their Colorado Springs home.

Dunlap was remembered as a punk rock-loving, gregarious man with incredible attention to detail -- so much so that he developed new Army training techniques that will be used by soldiers for generations to come, according to Sergeant First Class Bryant MacFarlane.  "He cared so much about others, it was unreal," MacFarlane said.  "The depth of his heard and compassion is unlike anyone I've ever met before in my life."

Dunlap and his newlywed wife Whitney, 35, were expecting their first child.  "No matter the hours he worked, he would say he was going home to Whitney and they were so excited to be having a family," said Master Sergeant Molly McCray.  "He would always talk about Whitney and the things they were doing and their dogs, and he absolutely loved Whitney."  McCray says she is taking in their two beloved dogs to live in her home.
