    Yesterday, xxxxxxx, 23, was killed in Afghanistan. He graduated as a D-3 Devil in May 2010.

    Not many details are available online yet - this is the only thing I could find so far: (link deleted)

    Be thou at peace.

    Damn---I emailed my D who is leading a platoon in Afghanistan in case she knew him (there are so many there from USMA she probably already has heard)--she was a year ahead of him at the academy--she emailed us yesterday to say she was taking a helicoptor tomorrow somewhere to do some patrols--please God keep them all safe--Prayers for xxxxx friends and family...

    The young man lost was the team leader for my youngest son's room mate in 2007. According to my son he was a great guy who influenced him hugely, and he is grieving his loss. I do have to make one minor correction -- he was not a 2010 graduate nor a 2LT. I will not go into the reasons, but he was serving as a soldier in the 10th MTN DIV and was on track to return to USMA next year to finish and graduate. The Army has not yet released an official announcement.
