We learned today of the death of Pvt. 1st Class Josh Seals, 21 years old, serving with the Oklahoma National Guard’s 45th Infantry in Afghanistan. He graduated Porter High School in Porter, Oklahoma in 2008. The 45th has lost 8 men in 8 weeks. It’s a sad time in Oklahoma. I’ll have updates as information becomes available.
His high school principal tells News On 6 Seals was a quiet, respectful young man who came from a military family.
I believe Josh is the 7th Oklahoma soldier to die with the 45th Infantry Regiment since July 29th, 2011.
God bless and comfort the family and friends of Pvt. 1st Class Seals
