Solder Killed in Afghanistan

A western Pennsylvania family is grieving this Memorial Day after a family member is killed in Afghanistan.

The Department of Defense confirms that a New Castle man was one of six soldiers killed in an attack in Afghanistan. Twenty-nine year old Staff Sgt. Edward Mills Jr. died Thursday following an attack in Kandahar Province.

Mills was a member of the Army's 101st Airborne Ranger Pathfinders on his third tour of duty in the Middle East. He had been deployed since February.
