Pfc. Thomas Wilson, a young man from Shenandoah County, died Monday from wounds suffered in an ambush while on patrol in Afghanistan. He was 10 days away from returning home from combat duty. After graduating from Central High School in Woodstock in 2004, where he was active on the track team, he attended West Virginia University before joining the Army.
Our prayers and thoughts are with Pfc. Wilson's family at this difficult time. A grateful nation thanks them for their sacrifice.
