JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska-based soldier from California has been killed in Afghanistan.
U.S. Army Alaska says in a release that 30-year-old Staff Sgt. Thomas Kent Fogarty of Alameda, Calif., died Sunday when the vehicle he was commanding hit a roadside bomb.
The Army says three other soldiers were wounded in the incident in Ahmad-Kheyl, Afghanistan.
All four are assigned to the 3rd Battalion (Airborne), 509th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division.
Officials say Fogarty joined the Army in January 2004. He was stationed at the Alaska base in January, and left for Afghanistan three months later.
