Thirty-one-year-old Brian Slavenas was piloting the helicopter when it was shot down Sunday.

Brian's older brother Eric says Brian was going to skip any vacation time that came his way to make sure soldiers with families and children could go home first.

Brian was the youngest of three boys, all military men.
