Silver Valley Girl: Impact of Iraq War Finally Hits Home

Item: Green Beret raised in Coeur d'Alene killed in Iraq/KXLY

Brad graduated from Kellogg High School in 1984. He was a great kid, and was best friends with my husband's brother. Here is what was told us about his death.

Early this Wednesday morning, May 9th, Cyndi Conner, wife of Sgt. Maj. Bradley D. Conner, received a visit from the Army Chaplain that her husband of 18 yrs and father of their three beautiful children had been killed in the line of duty in Iraq. This was his fifth tour in Iraq where he served in the Army Special Forces, Green Beret, as a 20 year veteran. The vehicle that he and others were riding in was blown up when it ran over a mine. The others sustained serious injury, leaving Brad as the lone fatality.

This is the first death from the war of someone I know. My prayers and with his family, and the others who are still there serving our country.
