Connecticut Airman’s Body To Be Returned To Air Guard Base Wednesday

NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) _ The body of a Connecticut airman killed in Afghanistan is scheduled to arrive this week at the upstate New York Air National Guard base that’s home to his security unit.

New York National Guard Officials say Tuesday that the body of 22-year-old Staff Sgt. Todd Lobraico Jr. of New Fairfield, Conn., will arrive Wednesday at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh in the Hudson Valley.

Military officials announced last week that Lobraico had been killed by small arms fire when his unit was attacked near Bagram Airfield.
Lobraico was serving with the 105th Security Forces Squadron based at Stewart. The unit, which provides security at air bases, was deployed to Afghanistan last June. It was Lobraico’s second overseas deployment.
