LYNN, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts family is grieving after receiving the news that their soldier son died in an off-base accident near Fort Campbell, Ky.
Doris and Paul Syrakos told The Daily Item of Lynn for a story Monday that their son, 22-year-old Pfc. Antonio Syrakos, died last Thursday.
The family says they were told few details of his death, as it remains under investigation.
Syrakos was adopted from Paraguay and lived in Lynn until joining the Army after high school at age 19.
He served a nine-month tour in Afghanistan and his parents say he was scheduled to be discharged in March.
