Another member of the gamer generation has fallen while serving in Iraq, reports the Military Times.
US Army Specialist Kyle Norris, 22, a member of the 101st Airborne Division, died on May 23 after his vehicle was struck by an IED in Iskandariyah, 30 miles south of Baghdad. From an Associated Press story:
“He wanted to protect his country,” his brother, 27, said. “He wanted to protect freedom for his family and his friends.”
Kyle Norris also loved to spend time with friends, whether it was playing video games or playing a game of paint ball…
“If he was sick and they told him to take it easy for a few days, he wouldn’t sit back,” Norris said. “He wanted to be out there with everyone… He was an awesome brother. He was all about family,” said Michael Norris. “Everybody loved him. No one ever said one bad thing about him.”
