2010)—A U.S. Army Ranger was killed in action May 8, during combat operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom while assigned to Company D, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.

Capt. Kyle A. Comfort, 27, a native of Jacksonville, Ala., was killed by an improvised explosive device during the conduct of a combat operation in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The operation led to the discovery of a large improvised explosive device “factory.”

“Kyle was a quiet professional who lived the Ranger Creed,” said Col. Michael E. Kurilla, commander, 75th Ranger Regiment. “Kyle was loved by all and will be remembered as a hero to our Nation, the 75th Ranger Regiment, and his family.”

“Kyle Comfort served our Nation and this unit with distinction. His sense of team play, courage and selfless service will live on as ideal examples of what a Ranger should be as we continue our fight,” said Colonel Dan Walrath, commander of 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.

Capt. Comfort is survived by his wife Katherine Brooke Comfort and their daughter Kinleigh Ann of Jacksonville, Ala., and his mother Ellen Comfort of Anniston, Ala.
