An Army official says 24-year-old Sergeant Michael Yashinski of Monument, Colorado died on Dec. 24 in an accident while he was installing communications wire.
Lieutenant Colonel James Bullinger says Yashinski was apparently electrocuted while installing the wire at Kirkuk Airfield in Iraq.
Yashinski was assigned to the 501st Forward Support Company of
the 173rd Airborne Brigade. The unit is based in Vicenza, Italy.
A memorial service is planned in Irondale for Yashinski. Bullinger says the time and place will be announced as soon as the family knows when the body will be sent home.
