RED OAK -- Jacqueline Greer watches video of an interview her daughter did for the Armed Forces Network very often.

"Just to hear her voice... hear what she's saying," Greer said.

But she and her husband, Anthony, mostly watch it because it is one of the few things they have left of Cierra Rogers.

Rogers was in the 731st Air Mobility Squadron and they were stationed at Osan Air Base in South Korea. Rogers would die unexpectedly on U.S. soil in May of 2016.

Just weeks before, she was being praised for her quick work -- and the work of fellow airmen and soldiers -- in saving a family from a fire.

It is a video from South Korea seen around the world of a mom tossing her kids to safety from three floors up. Rogers happened to be inside the building when the fire broke out and helped facilitate the rescue of the mother and her three children.

"She said she wouldn't change anything. She would have kicked that window out, scaled down that wall, and go get help," Mom said.

In doing that, Rogers would get badly hurt. Greer says she had a laceration on her leg and burns to her hands.

After returning home with several medals for her heroic action, she would settle in North Texas for seven days with the family. She signed on for six more years of military service and would have to report to Florida.

"That was the last time I saw her -- on this couch," stepdad Anthony Greer pointed to the seat right next to him.

She would embark on the long road trip to Florida with her father. Two days later, she complained of chest pains and died at a hospital in Florida.

The family does not know how she died, but wonders if the injuries she sustained from her heroic action in South Korea might have something to do with it.

Jacqueline and Anthony made a trip to South Korea because they "wanted to see it," Mom said.

They wanted to see the base where Rogers operated out of. They also went to the building that caught fire and where Rogers had helped save the family.

"I even stuck my head out the window, and I looked down, and I couldn't believe it," Greer told us. "I said, 'That was my courageous baby doing that.'"

Video of Rogers' interview gets played often in the home.

It brings the occasional smile to a mother's face; happy moments during tough times.
