U.S. Army Private First Class Jason D. Johns, 19, Frankton, Indiana
Died February 21, 2007 in Afghanistan of a non-combat related injury.
The Defense Department says that Private First Class Jason Johns died Wednesday in Bagram. His death is under investigation and no other details were released.
Johns was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division, based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
He moved to Indiana from Florida, where he'd attended military school. It wasn't long before he decided which path he wanted his life to take. He dropped out of Frankton Junior-Senior High School. But he obtained his GED and enlisted in the Army in October 2005.
Friends say PFC Johns repaired and maintained computers for the military. The Army is still investigating how he died.
