Pvt. Colman J. Meadows III

DoD Identifies Army Casualty

The Department of Defense announced today the death of a soldier who was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

Pvt. Colman J. Meadows III, 19, of Senoia, Ga., died Dec. 16, at Forward Operating Base Ramrod, Afghanistan, of injuries sustained from a non-combat related incident. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Hood, Texas.

The circumstances surrounding the incident are under investigation.

Mr. Stokely writes that this one hits close to home:

...his family goes to my church and he went to school with my middle son, Wes. He was the only child of his mother and father. He had recently enlisted, age 19 and was in country about a month before his death. He loved and wanted to serve and relayed to his family just the day before his death that he loved what he was doing.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. I am standing by and assisting them as needed.

We certainly will Robert, we certainly will.
