Roadside bomb kills captain, sergeant in Afghanistan
Roadside bomb kills captain, sergeant in Afghanistan
By Mark St.Clair, Stars and Stripes
Mideast edition, Saturday, November 17, 2007

The Pentagon has announced the deaths of a 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment captain and sergeant in Afghanistan.

Capt. David A. Boris, 30, of Pottsville, Pa., and Sgt. Adrian E. Hike, 26, of Callender, Iowa, were killed Monday near Bermel in eastern Afghanistan when their vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb. Both were members of 1-91s Troop A deployed out of Schweinfurt, Germany.

Boris, a 1999 West Point graduate, graduated from Pottsville High School in 1995, where he was a standout athlete and Honor Society member, according to the Pottsville Republican-Herald.

He was a great guy. I dont know how else to describe him, Linda Pavao, Boris mother-in-law, told the Republican-Herald. If we could have handpicked a husband for our daughter, he would have been it.

Boris wife of eight years, Jaime, resides in Schweinfurt. Pavao also said that Boris was looking to acquire a teaching position at West Point after his time in Afghanistan was complete.

1. RIP, men. Sad to see we're still losing lives in that war--it should have been over by now.
