Unhappy Corpsman down !

Late Sunday the DOD News release was published about the lose of PO2 XIN QI. I wait till I could find out if he was a Corpsman, He is!

DOD Identifies Navy Casualty DOD RELEASE No. 064-10 January 24, 2010

The Department of Defense announced today the death of a sailor who was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

[B][I]Petty Officer 2nd Class Xin Qi[B][I], 25, of Cordova, Tenn., died Jan. 23, while supporting combat operations in Afghanistan. Qi was assigned to Fourth Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Marine Expeditionary Brigade Afghanistan.

=====================================
Additional info from his Local Newspaper's web site:
Xin Qi, 25, of Cordova, was a Navy hospital corpsman on his first deployment to Afghanistan when he died in the line of duty Saturday from injuries suffered that same day.

"All we know is that he was out on patrol and was killed," said Maj. Paul Greenberg, the media officer for the Marine Forces Reserve Public Affairs Office in New Orleans. "We really don't like to say too much about the location."
