FORT CARSON, Colo. — A Wyoming soldier who was killed in a suicide attack in Afghanistan is being laid to rest.
Funeral services will be held for 45-year-old Army Command Sgt. Maj. Kevin J. Griffin of Laramie on Tuesday at Fort Carson. He'll be buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver.
Griffin was a 24-year Army veteran and father of two. He was killed along with two other soldiers and a foreign service officer on Aug. 8 when insurgents detonated suicide vests in Kunar province.
Griffin previously served three tours in Iraq and had been deployed to Kuwait and the Balkans.
He competed on the Riverton High School wrestling team and won a state championship.
Shawn Griffin told the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/P9jT0v ) that his brother loved his family even more than the military.
