Soldier from Jerome killed in Afghanistan

The Associated Press

TWIN FALLS, Idaho — A soldier from Jerome was killed in a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, the Department of Defense said July 25.

Army Spc. Adam Davis was one of four soldiers killed July 23 when a bomb detonated near their vehicle. The soldiers, all part of the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment (Airborne), 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, were patrolling the Sarobi District of southeastern Afghanistan.

Davis, 19, was stationed in Vicenza, Italy, for just a few weeks before he was deployed to Afghanistan, his father, Tim Davis said.

“We weren’t quite ready or thinking of him going into action,” Tim’s brother, Pastor Randy Davis, said. “He was stationed in [Italy]. It’s not like he was stationed in Kabul or Baghdad.”

Adam Davis, the youngest of three siblings, dropped out of Twin Falls High School so he could get his GED at the College of Southern Idaho and enlist in the Army, his family said.

“Adam is there by choice,” Randy Davis said. “I think he wanted to do something with his life. He’s still young and wasn’t thinking of college or anything.”

Also killed in the blast were 1st Sgt. Michael S. Curry Jr., 37, of Dania Beach, Fla.; Sgt. Travon T. Johnson, 29, of Palmdale, Calif.; and Pfc. Jessy S. Rogers, 20, of Copper Center, Alaska.
