From my friend Zen of Political Rants:
The war has hit close to home
I found out this morning that my wife's cousin was killed in Afghanistan. Just yesterday I wrote about my take on the war and to hear this tragic news first thing today, has taken the words from me.
The TL: A soldier from Pittston was killed from an explosion while serving in the military in Afghanistan, a family member confirmed late Tuesday evening.
Jeff DePrimo, 35, who reportedly served with a local Army National Guard unit, was killed in combat.
