WASHINGTON DC (defend.ht) - US Army Specialist Junot ML Cochilus du 7e bataillon d'ingénieur de Fort Drum New York, est décédé de blessures la semaine dernière quand un engin explosif improvisé a explosé dans la province de Logar en Afghanistan.
The U.S. Department of Defense released the names of Cochilus this week, who is from Charlotte, North Carolina and another soldier, a 23 year old from Ohio, Rylander, who was also killed in the May 2nd attack.
Both men were part of the 7th Engineer Battalion of the 10th Mountain Division's 10th Sustainment Brigade from Fort Drum, N.Y.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has directed that flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff on Friday, May 11 in honor of two soldiers.
"I join with all New Yorkers in mourning the loss of Specialist Cochilus and 2nd Lieutenant Rylander," said Cuomo.
"We will honor the service of these two Fort Drum soldiers and we will be forever grateful for the sacrifice that they made for our nation. I send my deepest sympathies to their family, friends, and fellow soldiers.
