Army Maj. Kip Taylor, 38, of Michigan, was like his brother Dean, following in his father's military footsteps. Don, their father, was the head of the ROTC program at Northern Michigan University. Kip Taylor loved running, golf and basketball. His family visited the crash site at the Pentagon last weekend. "His office was on the outside ring and took a direct hit," said Kip's sister, Ann Zaenglein. "There was nothing left of his office."

Maj. Kip Taylor was excited about the coming months for two reasons very dear to him: the birth of his second child in late October and a promotion in November.

Now, his wife, Nancy, and family are gathered in his McLean, Va., home waiting to receive word that Taylor's remains have been recovered.

Taylor, among those missing at the Pentagon, had been stationed there for about three years, said his brother, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Dean Taylor.

"He was the poster boy for the U.S. Army," Taylor said.

The son of a career Army officer, Kip Taylor enlisted after graduating in 1985 from Northern Michigan University.

At the time of the attack, Taylor, 38, worked in the adjutant general's corps and was a key aide to Lt. Gen. Timothy Maude, who is also missing.

Taylor was soon to become Lt. Col. Taylor, his brother said, but delayed the ceremony until late November so relatives could attend. They also would see his new baby.

"It was going to be a meaningful thing," his brother said.
