PA Soldier Killed Was From Berrettini's Hometown

Jeff DePrimo, the Pennsylvania soldier killed in Afghanistan was from Pittston, PA, hometown of Port Allegany School Nurse Lt. Col. Richard Berrettini, who died in January after his vehicle was hit by a explosive device in Afghanistan.

Also killed in the attack were a Navy lieutenant and an interpreter serving with the Provincial Reconstruction Team. The driver and gunner for the vehicle, both Pennsylvania National Guard soldiers, were injured in the attack and evacuated to Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan.

My husband is also over in Afghanistan, so if anyone knows the fears and emotions that a soldiers family goes thru, I think I do. My heart goes out to the family and our prayers stay with them as well as our soldiers that are still there. I recently went thru a tragic loss of my best friend last year and the only words that gave me any comfort were 'peace, be still'. Sometimes when you feel you should be out running around trying to undo what's already happened you have to remember that HE is God and HE is with you always. All you have to do is be still and listen because you will feel his comfort. With that, I pray for peace for the family and hope they feel the support of the military family.

I just found out about this today. I am a fellow soldier of Lt. Deprimo. I am currently serving in the Sinai Peninsula. He was in my home unit back at Pittston. I am shocked to hear that we have lost such a great asset. He was truely one of the best leaders I've known and he took care of his troops. I just hope the rest of the guys come home safe. All my thoughts and prayers go out to his friends, family and fellow soldiers. I'll miss ya 1LT Jeff Deprimo.
