Teen Killed in Iraq
(2007-07-17)
(wgvu) - A teen who got his parents'
permission to join the Army at 17 has been killed in the blast of
an improvised explosive device in Baghdad.
Eighteen-year-old Private First Class Christopher Kube was from
Macomb County's Shelby Township, about 15 miles north of Detroit.
The Pentagon says he died Saturday.
Kube was part of a unit from Fort Carson, Colorado.
He was one of two Michigan soldiers reported killed in Iraq last
week.
On Friday, 29-year-old Army Sergeant Allen Greka of Alpena, died
from injuries he sustained from a land mine while on patrol.
His unit was from Fort Benning, Georgia.
