Another war death hits home.
An Army sergeant from Spokane was killed along with four other 4th Infantry Division soldiers on Monday when a roadside bomb exploded, destroying their vehicle in Mosul, Iraq.
Sgt. James E. Craig, 26, was married in Spokane in July and deployed in December for his third tour in Iraq, according to his father, Joel Craig, of Cheney.
“He was a wonderful man who loved the Lord Jesus Christ with his whole heart,” Craig said of his son. “He served his country with dignity and honor.”
