101st Airborne soldier killed in southern Afghanistan

A 22-year-old soldier from Utah who was killed in Afghanistan is being remembered as a selfless patriot who was proud to fight for his country.
More than 100 friends and family members gathered at an LDS Church chapel in Salt Lake City on Sept. 25 to bid farewell to Sgt. Aaron Kramer. Kramer was shot Sept. 16 in a firefight with the Taliban. He was a member of the Army’s 101st Airborne Division based at Fort Campbell, Ky.
His family says he decided when he was 13 he wanted to join the Army, after witnessing the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
His twin brother, Brandon, said he wished everyone knew his brother the way he did. “Not everyone is born with their best friend,” he said.
