Minnesota Man Killed in Iraq
By Natalie Bervig
Former Minnesota man Spc. Sean K. Mcdonald, 21, died Sunday after a bomb exploded near his vehicle in Baghdad.
Although he only lived in Rosemount for a couple years, his sister Jessica said he planned to return here after his duty was finished next year.
McDonald is the 55th person with connections to Minnesota that has died due to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I found it to be very interesting that the Pioneer Press was not able get in contact with the family for information and kept thier story strictly to the facts - http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_5543700 - when the Star Tribune did a very lengthy story after talking with the sister of the victim. One paper must have been more persistant! http://www.startribune.com/722/story/1087771.html
