For Spc. Corey A. Hubbell, the military was important in a number of ways.
“Corey was a very friendly, likable young man who looked at the Army as personal development and training, and also as service to his country,” said Sam Furrer, Hubbell’s high school counselor. Hubbell died after being hospitalized in Kuwait with breathing difficulties. He was a carpentry and masonry specialist based at Fort Rucker, and deployed for Kuwait on Feb. 10. He enlisted in 2001 after graduating from high school.
“He looked at it as a way to gain some skills and a trade and go on from there,” Furrer said.
