ROSWELL, N.M. — A New Mexico soldier who was scheduled to return home before Christmas has died in Iraq.
Army Pfc. Brynn Naylor, 21, was killed Dec. 13 from small-arms fire in Baghdad, said Bernarr Treat, a Naylor family friend and designated spokesman.
“For the Naylor family, Christmas time now will always be marked by that, but you never want to forget either and they won’t forget Brynn’s commitment to family and country,” Treat said.
Naylor, who was stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, Colo., had served 15 months in Iraq on security patrol.
He graduated from Roswell’s Goddard High School in 2005 and turned down scholarships to join the Army, Treat said.
Naylor is survived by his father, Ross Naylor of Roswell, and his mother, D’Ann McGuire of Shallowater, Texas.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
