A 20-year-old North Texas soldier died last Friday from injuries he received in a vehicle rollover crash, The Department of Defense said.
Pfc. Peter K. Cross of Saginaw, Texas, died at Combat Outpost Carwile, Afghanistan.
Cross was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) in Fort Drum, N.Y.
Cross graduated from Boswell High School in 2007 and joined the Army in August.
His family said he always wanted to be in the Army and as a child he often wore camouflage clothing.
