Idaho Soldier Killed in Afghanistan Returned Home

BOISE, Idaho (KTVB) – An Idaho soldier who died earlier this month in Afghanistan was brought home Wednesday as part of an honorable transfer.  U.S. Army Specialist Tom Murach and four other Americans died when a bomb exploded while they were driving down a road on May 4th.

KTVB reports Nick Murach described his brother Tom as a person with a great sense of humor. As he and other family members welcomed his body home Wednesday afternoon at Gowen Field, it was the good time they had while he was alive that’s giving the family strength. On May 4, 2013, an improvised explosive device took his life.

Tom was only 22 years old. Now, a week and a half later, Murach’s family surrounded his casket, his mother resting her hand on the red and white of the American flag, while his three brothers stood strong by his side.

Murach was stationed in Fort Bliss, Texas. He will be laid to rest Monday, May 20, 2013. His funeral will take place at Capital Christian Center in Meridian at 1 p.m., and he will be buried at the Idaho Veterans Cemetery. via KTVB
