U.S. Army sergeant serving 14th deployment killed in Kandahar Province
Death of an American hero: Decorated repeatedly, soldier who
went to war for his country 14 times is killed by Taliban bomb
The United States Army is today mourning one of its most courageous and decorated heroes.
Sergeant 1st Class Kristoffer B. Domeij was one of three soldiers killed by a roadside bomb last Saturday near Kandahar Province.
Remarkably, the elite ranger, who died when the team triggered an improvised device, was serving his 14th deployment at the time.
In an extraordinary career, Sgt. Domeij was decorated a number of times - and crowning it will be the Purple Heart that military chiefs have confirmed he will be awarded posthumously.
The husband and father-of-two from San Diego will go down in U.S. Army history as one of the team who rescued rescued Private Jessica Lynch from her Iraqi captors in 2003.
R.I.P., good man.
