War Ensemble March 2012
The sergeant identified in the killing arrived in Afghanistan on Dec. 3 from his home station at Joint Base Lewis- McChord in Washington state, the U.S. Army said in a memo prepared yesterday for members of Congress. He was with the 2-3 Infantry, 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 2nd Infantry Division.
While in the conventional military, he was attached to a Special Operations task force in southern Afghanistan on Feb. 1, according to the memo.
The suspect is 38 years old and is married with two children, ABC News said, citing a U.S. official it didn’t name. He had marital difficulties after his last tour of duty in Iraq and had previously been deemed fit for duty after suffering a mild traumatic brain injury, the network said.
