BOISE — The Department of Defense has announced that a soldier from Idaho has died in Afghanistan. The military on Saturday said 20-year-old Pfc. Shane G. Wilson of Kuna died Thursday in Khost. The cause wasn’t given. He was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division based in Fort Campbell, Ky. Wilson was a 2011 graduate of Kuna High School. His family released the following statement:
“Shane died in the service of his country, and this is a very sad day for our family. He wanted to be a military man from a very young age and was proud to be a soldier. Shane was a very humble young man and was indeed one of the best men we’ve ever known. We loved him for so many reasons, including his loyalty, and he knew how to keep a confidence.  He was caring and compassionate, and he always placed others before himself. He will be missed by his entire family, including his mother, father, two sisters, grandparents and great-grandparents. We are very proud of him and we do not want him to be forgotten.”

Wilson is the sixth Idaho soldier or marine to die while serving in Afghanistan this year. The other five to give their lives in service to this country are; Preston’s Cody Moosman, Lewiston’s Ethan Martin, Rupert’s Chris Workman, Jerome’s Daniel Brown, and Wilder’s Kenneth Cochran.
