E-mail I received from a CW4 buddy of mine -

I can mention this now that it's official. Nick was one of my guys; a great young man doing something for his country instead of being on the sidelines. Once again a true silent professional. The dates and times of his passing are in contention. Nick was injured on Thursday and sent to Landstuhl Saturday on lifesupport so that his folks could see him one last time. The Army does great things. Nick was a Senior Voice Advisor and very, very good at his job.
