Idaho Soldier Remembered At Fort Carson Service

FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) – Fort Carson is holding a memorial service for Sgt. Daniel J. Brown of Jerome, Idaho, who was killed in Afghanistan last month.

The memorial will be Wednesday at a chapel on the infantry post outside Colorado Springs.

The 27-year-old died March 24 from wounds he suffered from an improvised bomb.

He was assigned to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, part of Fort Carson’s 4th Infantry Division. He was sent to Afghanistan in 2011 and Iraq in 2005.

A funeral service is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday at the College of Southern Idaho gymnasium in Twin Falls. Burial with full military rites will follow at Sunset Memorial Park.

Brown is survived by his wife, Jordan Brown, and their 3-month-old twin daughters.
