A Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier was killed Thursday when his vehicle rolled over in Afghanistan.

Spc. Anthony A. Paci, 30, was serving with 1st Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment in Gereshk in the southern province of Helmand, the Pentagon announced Saturday. Two other soldiers were injured in the incident.

Paci is the 22nd soldier – and the first since November – from his battalion to die since it deployed as part of 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division in July. Thirty-four soldiers from the brigade have been killed.

The Rockville, Md., native enlisted on October 20, 2004, and trained as an indirect fire infantryman. He deployed to Iraq in 2005-06 with a unit from Fort Hood, Texas. He arrived at Fort Lewis on May 10, 2007.

    My son was deployed to Iraq in 05-06 from Ft.Hood as well and is now with the 5/2. As a parent it makes you scared everyday when someone knocks on your door… If you pray, please please pray for his family. Rest in peace young man, you served your country well. ^i^

  5. Scott,

    What kind of vehicle? MRAP, Stryker or one of the new M=ATV MRAPS?

  6. Fantum: Didn’t say. Just said a vehicle rollover. These DoD releases are often left vague, and we follow up with more details from the memorial ceremonies.

  7. Fantum: Didn’t say. The DoD releases are usually pretty vague, so we go with what we get and follow up at the memorial services.
