JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — A 22-year-old New York soldier killed in Afghanistan is being remembered as a great teacher and mentor.
More than 400 people gathered in tiny Westfield, in Chautauqua County, for the funeral Friday of native son Sgt. Kevin White.
He was killed by a roadside bomb in Kunar province May 2, less than a month after arriving in Afghanistan.
Mourners called him a soldier's soldier, dedicated to others. Maj. Gen. Kendall Cox said the soldiers who served with White described him as a teacher and mentor.
White was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 35th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii.
