It’s always awful to hear about a fallen soldier, but it can’t be surprising.  These brave men and women in our Armed Forces are at war.  And it’s easy for us, on the other side of the world, to lose sight of that.

Joseph Lilly, family man, Flint native, and American hero is a reminder of the bravery and sacrifice that has become the trademark of our military.  After completing a tour of Iraq, Lilly volunteered for a tour in Afghanistan, where he ultimately met his end.  Sgt. Lilly and his unit were attacked on June 12th with an improvised explosive device.  Sgt. Lilly passed away 2 days later at a medical center, according to the Department of Defense.

Sgt. Lilly is survived by his wife and 3-year-old son. Along with Sgt. Lilly, Spc. Trevor Pinnick of Lawrenceville, Ill was also killed in the same battle.
