Camp Lejeune Marine Killed In Afghan Fighting

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.

    RIP my brother. Semper Fidelis. When people ask me why I joined the Marines, I always answer "So you don't have to."

      i'm so sick of everybody blaming everything on obama. as i recall, this world didn't get this way until bush came into office. obama is cleaning up bush's mess! so were you bush voters blind, deaf and dumb? or just normal in your eyes? if your daddy slaps your mama, is it obama's fault? if you catch a flat tire tomorrow, i guess that was obama who placed that nail there? this situation has nothing to do with obama. this is about a troop who was gracious enough to VOLUNTEER & lost his life so please stay focused. My prayers are with the family of this young man. May he rest in peace...
