Staff Sgt. Adam S. Thomas, 31, of Tacoma Park, Maryland,
died was killed Oct. 4 in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan, from by injuries caused by an improvised explosive device that exploded during dismounted operations. The incident is under investigation.
Yes, please do note my edits of the DOD news release. I admit, it has peeved me for some time how they all say ” So and So died in Clusterfuckville, Iraq/Afghanistan. As if all these healthy young troops just keel over of some sort of natural cause.
SSG Thomas served with the 10th Special Forces Group, now based at Ft. Carson, Colorado. This was my Minotaur husband’s old unit – back when it was based in Ft. Devens, MA and in Bad Toelz, Germany. So, this one feels a wee bit more personal to me.
