19 Yr. Old Kittaning Township Soldier Dead In Iraq

An Armstrong County woman is counting on the strength that comes from her faith and a large extended family to cope with the death of her son, who was killed in Iraq.

The family of Army Pvt. Joshua Waltenbaugh, 19, of Shay in Kittanning Township, was notified of his death by Army personnel on Tuesday.

Bonnie Waltenbaugh said the family received few details about the circumstances surrounding her son's death other than that he died from chest wounds inflicted by small-arms fire in the past several days near Taji, about 10 miles north of Baghdad.

She was told the death remains under investigation.
