US Army Pfc. Neil Turner

US Army Private 1st Class Neil Turner, from Tacoma, Washington, died in a training accident in Afghanistan this week. 

His father, Leland Turner, posted on Facebook 12th January: "My son, Neil, was killed during a training exercise yesterday in Afghanistan. When I get all the findings, I will post them."

The announcement rippled through a community of east Tacoma families who watched Neil grow up. He was the oldest of four brothers, and neighbors saw him keeping an eye out for his siblings.


  1. I love you Cuz and will miss you everyday!

  2. Your family is in my prayers !
