RIP Staff Sgt. Adam S. Thomas
We now have a name and a face to go with the US Casualty in Afghanistan the other day:
The Army has identified a highly decorated 31-year-old Fort Carson special forces soldier who died Tuesday after an improvised explosive device blast in Afghanistan.
Staff Sgt. Adam S. Thomas, of Tacoma Park, Md., was killed in the country’s Nangarhar Province, the Army said on Wednesday.
The Mountain Post Green Beret was assigned to Company B, 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne). He was killed during dismounted operations, officials say, and the incident remains under investigation.
“The 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) wishes to express deepest sympathies and condolences to the Family and friends who have been tragically touched by the loss of Staff Sgt. Adam Thomas,” Col. Isaac Peltier, commander of the 10th Special Forces Group (Airbone), said in a statement. “Staff Sgt. Thomas epitomized what it is to be a professional Green Beret and Soldier. His loss from our organization and his memory will not be forgotten.”
RIP Staff Sergeant
