Guam - Another son of Micronesia has paid the ultimate sacrifice. Federated States of Micronesia consul general Robert Ruecho confirms that an FSM citizen has been killed in action while serving in Afghanistan.
Ruecho says he confirmed with officials in Pohnpei that they had been briefly notified by the Department of Defense that an FSM citizen had been killed recently. Specific details of the incident in Afghanistan and the identity of the soldier have not been revealed as authorities are working to notify the soldier's family.
Ruecho says he is unsure whether the soldier lived on Guam or where he was residing when he enlisted in the military.
