(Taken from www.examiner.com) Army Sgt. Eduviges G. Wolf, 24, a wife and mother from the Los Angeles area was killed Sunday in Afghanistan's Kunar province when insurgents attacked her vehicle with a rocket-propelled grenade.
Wolf, who was from the city of Hawthorne and had a husband and two young daughters, was assigned to the 704th Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, out of Fort Carson, Colo.
Her husband Josh, whom she met at the Fort Bragg, Colo. Army base, was serving in another unit in Afghanistan at the time of her death. He has since left the country to be with the couple's two young daughters, Valerie, 1, and Isabel 3, who are staying with his mother in South Dakota.
Sergeant Eduviges Wolf bravely fought to defend our country overseas, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said in a prepared statement. "Her honorable service to our country will forever be remembered with great respect.”
A Fort Carson spokeswoman says this is the deadliest single month for the post since the war in Afghanistan started in 2001 and Iraq was invaded in 2003.
