Family mourns slain soldier from Yonkers
The family of 26-year-old Army Sgt. Edward Frank II is mourning his death after he was killed in Afghanistan last Thursday.
Frank, a father of three, grew up in Hartford, Conn., but called Yonkers home.
Officials say Frank was killed when a roadside bomb detonated next to the Humvee he was riding in. Four other soldiers riding with him were also killed.
His mother says he was due to return stateside, but instead signed up for one last mission.
His family says that plans are still being finalized for a funeral in Connecticut.
Meanwhile, flags in both Yonkers and Hartford are being flown at half-staff.
