Idaho Soldier Killed in Afghanistan

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2011 at 8:25 AM

The small Adams County community of Council is mourning the death of Army Sgt. Devin Daniels, killed last week by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Daniels, who still had family in Council was a graduate of Eagle High School when his parents lived in the Treasure Valley. He leaves behind a wife and a 7-month-old daughter.

Daniels was killed while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. He was stationed at marine base Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan. Daniels' death was part of the deadliest month for U.S. troops in the nearly 10-year war in Afghanistan. A record 66 Americans died in Afghanistan in August.

Daniels will have a military funeral service at Fort Bragg, N.C., where he was stationed. A local service in Council will be scheduled for a later date.
