"He and a lot of his fellow Marines firmly believed in their mission... They felt they were doing a lot of good and they were willing to be there. I can't say they were glad to be there, but they were happy to do what was needed." Brett Allred, father Allred, 22, of Hyde Park, died with five other Marines, including fellow Utahn Quinn Keith, in a suicide bomb attack. Allred, a Marine Corps lance corporal, was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, in Camp Pendleton, Calif.
