Michigan Soldier Killed
(2008-07-11)
(wgvu) - Family members say a Fort Campbell soldier
killed in Iraq was a natural leader.
Sgt. Steven J. Chevalier of Flint, Mich., was killed Wednesday
in a grenade attack in Iraq.
The Defense Department said the 35-year-old Chevalier
(sha-vel-EE'-ay) was on patrol in Samarra when the grenade hit his
vehicle.
His aunt, Carole Miller, said her nephew was "always
concerned" about the men under his command. She told The Flint
Journal that "He wouldn't expect his men to do anything he
wouldn't do."
Miller said Chevalier didn't talk much about his overseas
assignments when he was home because he wanted to protect his two
daughters.
Other survivors include Chevalier's wife, Geneva, and his
mother, Dorothy Carol Chevalier.
Steven Chevalier was part of the 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry
Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division. He was
based at Fort Campbell, a sprawling Army post on the
Kentucky-Tennessee line.
