It is being reported by the Daily Freeman that Pfc. Douglas L. Cordo of Kingston was killed in action in Zabul, Afghanistan, during an enemy attack.
Cordo died protecting the freedoms that we as Americans take for granted every single day. The freedom to speak, practice religion, publish a newspaper, book, or blog, and/or own property have all been protected for us by brave men and women like Pfc. Douglas L. Cordo.
Along with everyone in Kingston, I want to offer my condolences to the Cordo family.
