A soldier from Jerome was killed in a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
Army Pfc. Adam Davis was one of four soldiers killed Monday 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 in 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."
