Wisconsin Remembers Fallen Soldier

In Wisconsin, friends and family of Capt. John Kurth are mourning his death, though they say he was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he died. The 31-year-old West Point graduate was killed last Saturday in Tikrit when a road side bomb exploded under his Humvee while on patrol. From Wisconsin Public Radio, Gil Halsted has this profile.
