60 Year-Old Arizona Man Becomes Oldest US Soldier to Be Killed in Iraq
60 year-old Maj. Steven Hutchinson, a Vietnam War veteran, who re-enlisted after the 9-11 attacks was killed on May 10th by a roadside bomb in Iraq.
He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 34th Armor Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kansas.
A 60-year-old Vietnam War veteran who was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq has become the oldest Army soldier to die in that conflict, the military said Thursday.
An Associated Press database of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan shows that Maj. Steven Hutchison, of Scottsdale, Ariz., is the oldest member of any service branch killed since the wars broke out.
His brother said Hutchison decided to re-enlist after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the death of his wife.
Rest in Peace, Maj. Hutchinson.
