A North Carolina Marine, who was stationed at Camp Lejeune, is the latest casualty in Afghanistan.
The Defense Department says Lance Corporal Christopher Levy of Randolph County died Saturday after being wounded last Wednesday. The 21-year-old Marine was involved in combat operations in the Helmand province.
Levy was assigned to 1st Battalion, 6th Marines at Lejeune.
Levy's stepfather told WXII in Winston-Salem that the Marine was on his second tour in Afghanistan, a tour that he had volunteered for.
