The Defense Department says 21-year-old Spc. James A. Justice of Grover died Friday at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany. He suffered his injuries Tuesday in the Wardak province.

Justice was assigned to an airborne brigade combat team based at Caserma Ederle in Vicenza, Italy.

My condolenses to the family of this soldier

RIP Sir, I am all choked up after reading this. It is the very bravest that keep our country free. My prayers go out to his family and his friends.

I am a Veteran myself and served in the Vietnam Era, but never saw war. I was posted in Acheffenburg, West Germany. I spend my free time doing volunteer work for the DAV and helping anyway I can because I honor these Men and Women so much!

God's Peace to all of you.
