Reed's brother, Brian Reed, told the Lewiston Morning Tribune on Monday that his family was contacted by Marine Corps officials over the weekend.
Reed graduated from Highland High School in Craigmont and was on the school wrestling team.
He is the seventh soldier from Idaho to be killed since the start of the war in Iraq.
Army Pfc. Cleston Raney, 20, of Rupert was the most recent victim before Reed.
Raney and four other soldiers were killed March 31 when a bomb exploded under an armored personnel carrier in Habbaniyah, Iraq.
